Do you take the time to spell out Christmas and not just put "Xmas"?

This has always bothered me. We celebrate CHRISTmas for a reason...why would you be so rude to "X" out Christ? Sorry if this is very controversial, i'm just sick of seeing it.

  • Actually, if you have time and energy to get all bent out of shape over this, you should be spending your time counting your blessings because you've got a far better life than most people on this planet.
    Or you can continue to spend your time looking for something to bitch about ...

  • Actually, I get more offended at those who think Christmas is properly written as CHRISTmas. And while I usually write it out (because I too think it's lazy not to), Merry X-mas!

  • You do know the "X" stands for Christ and was used in ancient times when Christians were persecuted...like code. It's completely correct to write it Xmas.

    I tend to write it out as Christmas and I'm not Christian and Jesus has nothing to do with why I celebrate on the 25th (even though we still call it Christmas). No one can take anything out of your holiday, quit worrying about what other people do.
    Happy Holidays.
