I thought you might find this excerpt from Grammar Girl interesting:
Just call me Cliff...
'Xmas' just looks as if a person was too lazy to write out the full word.
Thanks for the info of where it originated Susan. Merry Christmas to you and your Kitty.

No joke. no sarcasm, I mean it.I may think you are all illogical and worse, but I do realize that at least MOST of you (all but the Koch Brothers, Murdoch and the like) actually want the same thing all we fuzzy thinking Liberals want - a better world.So: Merry Xmas.

And don't get your nose all out of joint.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XmasSo many people seem to be looking for reasons to be offended. I am sick and tired of people complaining about the use of Xmas instead of Christmas. It is a non-issue...

Merry Christmas to all fellow hubbers. This is the Xmas tree we decorated at our sweet home. Honestly speaking I have not been able to take my eyes off it. Have a wonderful Xmas... Enjoy the day... !!
