Well, not everyone celebrates it for religious reasons, which is why its such a wonderful time of year. It, the season and all the holidays this time of year mean and represent something different to everyone!

it's true about X meaning Christ in Greek. and I agree; I will not take Christ out of Christmas. But, did you know that even if you see Xmas written, it is not pronounced X-mas. It would still be pronounced Christmas? putting Xmas is not in the same category as someone being politically correct by saying 'Happy Holidays', instead of "Merry Christmas." Anyway, writing 'Xmas' is really not dishonoring the Lord. I am pretty sure there is a blog or something right here on MMC about this very subject.

Yes, I've known this for quite some time now. I had a friend who used to get upset about it. While putting together a history of Christmas section for my MySpace Christmas page (now since deleted and moved to a Christmas blog), I found out about this from The Everything Christmas book. Very interesting! I still mostly write out Christmas, but in a pinch I don't have a problem using Xmas...knowing the meaning and that it is pronounced the same as CHRISTmas.
