Merry Christmas or Xmas?

26 Dec

A little reflection I heard from a friend on one lenghtly road trip caught my attention since it was somewhat very noteworthy.

Today many people started to use the expression “Merry Xmas”, which might appear completely insignificant, and merely practical or original, however after a closer second look we might find a deeper importance in it, let’s have a look…


X – is commonly used as variable, thus it stands for something unknown or uncertain. People who use this expression can possibly apply it because they do not know the true meaning of this holiday and therefore correctly put a variable to define their unawarness. Second part of the word “mas” can then closer specify the actual practice or custom that takes place during this time. In most cases this akronym could stand only for “meat and soup“.


Christ – is the very meaning of this event. Such person surrounds everything around His birth, for that is the core idea of this session. Again, second part of the word develops this idea further and could stand for “master and savior

Note: Any resemblance of thoughts in this post to actual persons and events is purely coincidential. πŸ™‚

    X comes from Ξ§ΟΞΉΟƒΟ„ΟŒΟ‚(Greek:Christos), a shorting of Christ which was used by the Church. I would be shocked if it was Y-mas πŸ™‚ but X-in-mas is for Christos.

      Thank you for correction Prayson. It is good to have here the real fact, yet I am sure you know that this post was not even remotely based on any true evidence, but rather a personal speculation and cogitation πŸ™‚
