I mean I spell it out, but many people get offended by this because it takes the word Christ out of it. People need to relax. Its not that big of a deal.

    The problem isn't that you took the name Christ out, it's what that means. You're just shortening the word, but for people who are celebrating Christmas as the religious holiday that it is, it's annoying enough that everyone jumps on the bandwagon (and that they completely change everything and make it ridiculously commercial) but to then even say that it's Xmas, not Christmas, like, not even bothered to get the name of the feast day they're stealing right. It's the equivalent of saying 'happy holidays' or 'season's greetings' - it's not a holiday or a season, it's a celebration of Chirst. (Although it COULD be called a season, when people say 'season's greetings' they don't mean it that way). It just comes across as disrespectful to what you're actually talking about.

    Yes but I don't make an issue of it to other people, I just write it the way I want and let others do what they want.

    "X-mas" in an expression that has it's origin in the Greek Orthodox Church, where "X" is a symbol for the cross of Christ. This is simply not understood by many Americans.

    The X is really the Greek letter Chi which is a symbol that means CHRIST. It can be foundin The vision of Constantine where he had a vision of an angel who told him to accept Christ as his Lord and Savior and to have His symbol "XP" (Christ Lord) painted on the shields of his soldiers for their protection.

    It's just short form. It even makes sense when you look at how little Christ has to do with Christmas nowadays.

    I'm a theistic satanist and it still pisses me off! O_O Christmas is a CHRISTIAN holiday about the supposed birth of Jesus CHRIST. Why do we shorten it to x-mas, but we don't shorten Hanukkah. Because Hanukkah is wayyy harder to spell too. Happy Holidays is fine but saying "x-mas" is just stupid. Have some respect for their religion.

    I was only joking, so why can't a butthurt Christian Bible-thumper take a joke? (<-- End questions with a question mark, and I think you forgot a space between the period and the "I". I'm not usually a grammar Nazi, but I'd like to point out that the 15 year old Liberal snot nose has better grammar than the wise and righteous Diana)

    Your not so wise and righteous. My grammar might not be perfect.But my soul isn't black like yours.Your parents must be very proud of you.You are a typical Liberal.

    I've always called it Christmas and therefore it shall never change. However, I do not make a deal out of people saying X-Mas since it is basically the same thing. Anyone who says "happy holidays" can just go straight to hell though.

    It still means "Christmas". There's no reason to be offended. Just like when we say F.B.I. instead of Federal Bureau of Investigations, or sometimes we say Bob, Cathy, and Nick instead of Robert, Catherine, and Nicholas. The meaning is still the same.

    It's an adaptation of a pagan holiday, having nothing to do with Christ.

    The whole Christmas thing has so much commercialism and media involved it has long lost it's religious status. It shouldn't bother people at all.
