Xmas = Christmas

In Greek, the letter Χ (chi), is the first letter of Christ, and it, or the similar Roman letter X, has been used as an abbreviation for Christ since the mid-16th century.[9] Hence, Xmas is often used as an abbreviation for Christmas.

All you “Xmas takes Christ out of Christmas” believers can now shut up.

  1. Yup. Not all Xtians are well informed. That’s okay. We’re all uninformed about a great many things.


  2.  “Xmas” in itself is not offensive to me, but there is a trend which has established that particular spelling as being the less “religious” version.  In some cases, Xmas actually does intentionally take the Christ out of Christmas.  In other cases, it’s just there because someone’s feeling lazy or couldn’t fit it into a Tweet :p.
