Today's letter is X.
The term "Xmas" is a bone of contention for many since it seems an informal and crass abbreviation of what is a very traditional and celebrated event.
The X stems from the Greek word for Christ, so the abbreviation is accurate, however it is a term that is discouraged since it seems to gloss over the importance of Jesus. While the term was used on occasion by the likes of Lord Byron, Samuel Coleridge and Lewis Carroll, in secular society it is also considered rather abhorrent by many, including myself.
I feel it is of the utmost importance to write Merry Christmas on your Christmas cards and not Xmas.
Please keep Christ in CHRISTmas.
Therefore, I wish you all a Very Merry CHRISTmas!
I'm keeping CHRISTmas in my heart all year round ~ Sandi
