Getting sick of reading X-mas on your cards?

Well, before the days of political correctness, and the supposed right of not being offended. The X is actually the Greek letter chi (χ). Which has the pronunciation of Kh, so in Greek you’d say Christ as χριστοs. So when you see the X you acknowledge Christ in the Greek. But of course most people don’t know this fact. (Sad to say).

So if you’re going to use the χ (Capital letter looks like this X) at least know what it stands for. However, Christmas without Christ is nothing.

So let me wish all of you a Merry Christmas, and I will see you in the new year! (as I’m taking a vacation from blogging, but if something important comes up, you’ll know)

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum.
