The Xmas of Christmas

christmasflowers.jpg Someone has written that people use Xmas and it means Xhaustion,Xcuses, Xchanges, Xcesses, Xtravegences, Xasperations, Xhibitions and worldly Xcitement. How much better to make the Lord the very center of our Christmas observance. Keep Christ in Christmas!

Yes, I know that X is the letter chi in Greek which was used as a symbol of Christ. I know that the X was also a symbol of the cross. Check out the article at wikepedia. I choose to take a balanced position on Xmas. I don’t view every use ofthe abbreviation as a sinister plot, however I know that there are manywho choose the shortcut either because of a deliberate attempt to leaveChrist out or because they just don’t care very much. Personally, I choose not to use Xmas. Even if it takes longer to write and even if it takes more space, I’m still going to write Christmas.
