Xmas, REALLY? ~ Really!

Often we take offense of the abbreviation of Xmas for Christmas, and rightly so, for some use it with NO knowledge if its etomolgy, thinking they are taking Jesus out of their celebration. HOWEVER, (gotta love the ‘however’ of God) the “X” comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word when translated into English as “Christ”, so you see, Xmas is indeed CHRISTmas. Early Christians used this like they did, the FISH symbol (known as the Ichthys, FISH, the first letters of the phrase, ‘Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior’) Granted I personally prefer CHRIST (plain and simple) but folks You CANNOT take Christ out (plain and simple). Blessed Xmas to you all (with the full ancient Greek rushing forward to splatter God all over the place) \o/
