Don’t worry if someone calls it “Xmas”


Because the “X” in “Xmas” simply comes from the Greek “x” meaning “chi” which was used for “Christ”.

Earliest use was in 1551 when society was, er, pretty religious.

But now they’re just calling it “Happy Holidays”, bingers!!!

That’s OK. The word “holiday” is derived from “holy day”.

God bless you all and Merry Christmas, Merry Xmas, and Happy Holidays!
