X-mas versus Christmas

Is it anti-Christ or is it just misunderstood

I think the latter...

Our language is based on prefects and subjects i.e A=Alpha B= Beta

10th century monks who still spoke almost entirely in Latin while in the monastery coined the phrase Xmas...

There was not a C=for Christ but the Chr sound did exist....as the letter X

In their existence and their lives to become closer to God their intentions have become so misunderstood..

Maybe we can pause look at the intentions not always the results

Merry Xmas to all

I learned this story when my teacher sent me to detention for using the work Damn/dam

I was 10 years old and I brought her this story from the Encyclopedia set in the library

She read it to the class and in todays world she would have been fired

Holiday is from the olde English "holy day" so as an atheist I'm offended by Happy Holidays.

For the record, I'm not really an atheist. I'm more of a Dick.
Just thought this was funny and surprised it hasn't been added to the offensive things list

It always has been and always will be Merry Christmas to me. I don`t give a damn who it upsets. They can get over it or just move on.
