Merry Christmas everyone
Merry Christmas all. Fact- The term "Xmas", an age old shortened form of the word Christmas, originates from the use of the Greek letter chi to represent "Christ" (Χριστός). When the early Christians were being slaughtered by the Romans for practicing their "new" religion, the early Christians used the character X from Greek to signify the word Christ, a sort of graffiti code the Romans were not quick to decipher. As a rebellious action, the X ended up being scratched into walls all over the mideast and eventually all over the world. X means Christ in Greek. It is to honor Him. That is a fact.
I have no problem wishing all a Merry Christmas, I am a Catholic BTW, but I also understand that Merry Xmas is a valid religious term and is not some grand atheist conspiracy to deny our Savior His dignity.
We were just talking about the 'X' in Christmas as a shortcut and hubby said he'd rather spell it out because 'X' is somewhat off. Anyway, Merry Christmas all...hope your turkey is moist and juicy...we're having pork in sunny Missouri to keep the terrorists out of our yard. LOL

Merry Xmas from down here in New Zealand. I would rather that people try and keep the "Christ" in Christians.
Christmas would not be without Christ. Merry Christmas to all.

Here is hoping everyone had a safe and very Merry Christmas, hope santa was good (or at least fair) to everyone. Lets keep Christ in Christmas, and all year long, Amen.
