"X'mas" - Trying to Take Out Christmas!
Okay, for the archaic illiterates in my church - X'mas is not some marketing conspiracy to "X" out Christmas. Yeah, yeah, I can hear you all screaming "but, Christ must!" The X is the Greek upper case letter "chi" from which the Greek word "Χριστος" or "Christos" is spelled from. This is the Greek word from which we translate the English "Christ" from. "Χριστος" means "anointed one." So please, stop the "Kill the Da Vinci Coders" and such - crawl out from under your KJV rock once in awhile and catch a breath of fresh air. So kids, nothing wrong with "X'mas," it's quite nice actually.
