X is for X-Mas
Gabi Griffey X is for X- Mas
I’m not sure when this trend started, but it seems like the phrase X- Mas has always been around. Growing up in a Christian family, this has always seemed disrespectful to the original name, Christmas. Many people I know agree that Christmas should keep Christ in it – for that is the reason for the season. However, it may not be as blasphemous as it may seem. In the Greek language (the original language of the New Testament), the word Christ actually begins with the letter X (or in Greek it’s called chi). So, it simply is an abbreviation, however people may view it. The fact of the matter is that there would be no Christmas without Christ, and no amount abbreviations can discount that.
