And A Merry X-MAS To You

To Gillie and everyone else, a Merry X-mas.

The word "Christmas" is a contraction of two words "Christ's mass" and is derived from the Middle English Christemasse and Old English Cristes mæsse, a phrase first recorded in 1038. In early Greek versions of the New Testament, the letter Χ (chi), is the first letter of Christ (Χριστός). Since the mid-16th century Χ, or the similar Roman letter X, was used as an abbreviation for Christ. Thus, Xmas is an abbreviation for Christmas.

Wait until you find out that most people are wrong about the names of Santa's reindeer.

Now! Dasher, now! Dancer, now! Prancer, and Vixen,
On! Comet, on! Cupid, on! Dunder and Blixem.

There's enough I get worked up about when it comes to being anti-PC, without getting worked up about stuff that doesn't have anything to do with PC. Hell, I'm against Toys for Tots (anti-gun and anti-Jesus) and Target stores (anti-Salvation Army bell ringers) just to name a couple. And, don't get me started about all those stupid people who call Washington's Birthday "President's Day."

Just to be sure everyone feels included:

Happy Ramahanukwanzmas.

I can't wait to see what St. Nick puts under my tree this year. I circled a nice toy in the Sears catalog. (Pun fully intended).

Can I use you as a "phone a friend" the next time I'm on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? But seriously, Merry Christmas to all and your families and may your holiday season be a safe and happy one!
