Original Post

Every season I see signs that say Xmas and it really annoys me, probably because when I was a little girl I pointed one out to my mother and asked her about it and she said that by doing that you were taking Christ out of Christmas.

Now, I am not an overly religious person, I do not go to church as often as I maybe should, but I believe in God and I celebrate Christmas and I buy christmas trees, afterall it is Christmas.

I am wondering about everyone else's veiws on this.

If you do not want to leave a comment here please go to my blog where there is an private poll, I am really curious about this!

Am I the only one bothered by this??

I do not care one way or the other. Can anyone really take Christ from you by saying or writing the work holiday. If so, how stong is your faith?

I guess I do not want my kids growing up with winter breaks and holiday trees.

Xmas is not taking the Christ out of Christmas. The X comes form the Greek letter Chi as in the very famous Chi/Rho pages from the Book Of Kells and the Lindisfarne Gospels.

Go and have a look at either of these pages some time. They are spectacular.

Chi has been used to represent the word Christ for over a thousand years.

Chi is pronounced Ky by the way.

i don't like the holiday tree thing - too generic! Which holiday is the tree for - FLAG day? I think we need to institute a new holiday for all those "politically correct", overly uptight, ridiculous people who want the world to be so vanilla that it loses all flavor and spice...Let's vote on names for THEIR holiday...

Anally Impacted Day...(does anally have two l's or one?)

Well, it is winter, and it is a holiday, isn't it?
