I always say “Blessed Christmas” not just “Happy Holidays.” I cannot have a Christmas celebration without Christ in it. Christ is not an “X” in a word. Christ is “The Word.” So have a Blessed Christmas and enjoy the celebrations.

Have a Blessed New Year! Vin 29 Dec 2011 Reply “Xmas” is not a secular plan to “take the Christ out of Christmas.” “The usual suggestion is that ‘Xmas’ is … an attempt by the ungodly to x-out Jesus and banish religion from the holiday.” However, X stands for the Greek letter Chi, the starting letter of Χριστός, or “Christ” in Greek. The use of the word “Xmas” can be traced to the year 1021 when “monks in Great Britain…used the X while transcribing classical manuscripts into Old English” in place of “Christ” -wiki. Francis Kong 30 Dec 2011 Reply Thank you for your comments Vin and I do wish everyone in the world has this consciousness like yours and not use “X” as in some comical super heroes too! Have a Great Day!
