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.

    Ever since, though I tried to hold it back to keep from offending people, I share the same sentiments about the use of “Xmas”,amazing as it may seem. I sure am so elated and so proven correct. May you and your family have a Blessed Christmas and a prosperous year ahead, Mr. Kong!

    True, christ must always be mentioned in the season’s greetings. But may i just share that the “X” in Xmas is the letter CHI in the greek alphabet which is the first letter in the greek word for anointed or CHRISTOS. A blessed Christmas to all!

    in algebra x may be considered unknown but x is a representation of something.unknown does not mean nothing. you have to find out what is that unknown number.in Greek alphabet x represent Kristos.you have to discover x in Algebra but in Greek the x is already found. A blesses Xmas to all!

    “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.[122] 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.

      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!
