Christ and was called, somewhat unimaginatively, the Chi-Rho. Perhaps he should have run that press release by a religious scholar before issuing it.

For us as Christians, this is one of the most holy of the holidays, the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. And for people to take Christ out of Christmas. They’re happy to say merry Xmas. And really, I think, a war against the name of Jesus Christ. X’ in X-mass stood for christ. Christmas originates from the pagan tradition of Saturnalia. So don’t think you’re being smart because I too am happily celebrating this wonderful pagan tradition of giving and receiving gifts and having a good time.
Yule was all of December and January, and was based on the lunar calendar. Saturnalia was observed in early December, and had nothing to do with the solstice. Saturnalia was observed approximately around the 17th and could continue through the 23rd. It was a major influence on the Christian practice of Christmas. Having fun was not on the early Christians’ minds. The wanted a time to safely celebrate the Christ’s birth. The Christmas tree was a Christian addition.
Martin Luther decorated the first Christmas tree with lights. The lights represented the stars on the night of Christ’s birth. The decorating of the tree was a Saturnalia tradition. They stole pagan holidays like X mas and easter- where in that ridiculous comic book does it say chocolate or egg or bunny or any of the things most commonly associated with these holidays?

And if you want to cry about raining on people’s parades, ask the millions of people that are subjugated and killed every day in the name of your superstition. Human rights are violated every day, people in Africa die from aids every day because the pope says condoms are evil. Chill dude this article talks about the X in Xmas only, not the entire of Christian practices. And to say that people die from AIDS because Pope bans condom would be quite overgeneralizing, anw. No, it would be literally true. John Paul II deliberately and directly caused the spreading of HIV in Africa.
He promoted abstinence and chastity as methods of prevention. Thing is, while people would listen to his bullshit about not using condoms, they didn’t take any notice when he told them not to have sex so much. I’m not aware of the present Pope’s opinion on this matter, or if the Catholic church still spreads these lies. Just sit there in your wrong and be wrong. His birth from Mary, his mother.
A Huge Advantage in the Long Term
His birth in the hearts of the faithful. Where did you come up with this nonsense? Totally agree the two don’t mix at all. People need to stop participating in the paganism. And if you really want to get technical about it, you have get rid of the title Christianity, neither Jesus or he’s true Apostles uses this term. Or any follower of the crazy fictional characters.

People are enjoying themselves and spreading joy. If you don’t like it then don’t celebrate. Joseph, Saturnalia was celebrated in the Roman empire around December 25, in honour of the god Saturn. Gold and small images were exchanged as gifts and there were some pretty wild parties. What in the world are you talking about?
Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. If you believe otherwise, you’re looking for trouble. Father YHWH asked us to celebrate HIS days, not manmade or man-appointed days. I’m glad to know this, Xmas is a short convenient abbreviation for Christmas. I don’t want to be offensive by using unacceptable language. I wonder if when Jesus returns if he will be speaking southern babtist English or the language of his birthplace?
I’m absolutely convinced everybody abbreviating Christmas is well aware of the koine Greek alphabet, and fully intends to their readers to imply Jesus Christ mass, one of the most holy days of the Christian calendar. X in place of Christ are at best lazy and at worst deliberately attempting to secularise the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. The fact remains that Christians are not going to declare a jihad on anyone replacing the most important part of Christmas, so feel free to continue to display religious and cultural sensitivity only to those you fear and or feel politically obliged to where in a minority. Or, count the cost of writing it properly, and at least pretend to actually be tolerant and culturally sensitive to those billions of people who really would prefer you didn’t take Christ out of Christmas, whatever stretch of the imagination you’d otherwise use to rationalise it. I feel it is a waste of time talking about others belief. As a Christian Jesus is the savior of all.
And that is a very ignorant statement. Just because people believe something other than you, doesn’t mean that it’s a waste of time. In that sense, non-believers think church is a waste of time. Indira, you know that you are to spread the word of Jesus Christ. Which involves discussing beliefs with people.
X is akin to crossing out his name and basically doing away with it! Isn’t that what Satan wanted and still wants? Do you even understand any Greek alphabet? If you’re really a Christian and really know that the New Testament was written in Greek, you should have known this. You called Him Christ instead of Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
So were you crossing Him out? You didn’t address Him with His full Name. Concerning the Bonus Facts, I think that the second Letter is not RHO it is IOTA.

9. You learn you’re not in it for the money. We don’t get paid enough for loving on those kids learning from those kids.
My father went to Chicago Theological Seminary immediately after WW2. He told me when I was a kid that they were taught that X stood for Christ in their notes and in other places, and that Xmas was indeed a valid abbreviation for Christmas. I enjoyed your posts about this subject. IXOSE, the letter X stands for Christ. And don’t get mad with those who just say Happy Holidays. There is nothing we can do or say to lessen the glory of our Lord and our God.
I really think that the X in xmas is crossing out christ. I think Lou doesn’t have any idea that the New Testament was written in Greek. Your’re all saying that it’s all because of the Greek representation, symbol, history and what not. Greek, so if you add a word after that it must be english of course. You completely and utterly forget how much of our language comes from Ancient Greek. Beyond that you would be surprised how much of the English language comes directly from other languages. If you want to keep with this narrow minded logic that you can only use words and letters of an English origin, you are going to find that you have very little to say.
The whole problem is that nobody knows this. Oh, hey, the X in Xmas is a greek symbol for Christ! I wouldn’t have a problem with it.

In other alphabetic systems, diacritical marks may perform other functions. Greek diacritical marks, which showed that letters of the alphabet were being used as numerals. This varies from language to language, and may vary from case to case within a language. In some cases, letters are used as “in-line diacritics”, with the same function as ancillary glyphs, in that they modify the sound of the letter preceding them, as in the case of the “h” in the English pronunciation of “sh” and “th”. The tilde, dot, comma, titlo, apostrophe, bar, and colon are sometimes diacritical marks, but also have other uses. Not all diacritics occur adjacent to the letter they modify.
In the Wali language of Ghana, for example, an apostrophe indicates a change of vowel quality, but occurs at the beginning of the word, as in the dialects ’Bulengee and ’Dolimi. Because of vowel harmony, all vowels in a word are affected, so the scope of the diacritic is the entire word. The j, originally a variant of i, inherited the tittle.
