Further to Chuck Benson’s letter (The News, Nov. 29), I would remind people that December 25. is the day Christians celebrate the birth of Christ. It is not the birthday of someone called “X.”
So to those businesses who put Merry Xmas in their ads or on signs in their windows, don’t expect to see me walking through your door!
Editor’s Note: ‘Xmas’ if Wikipedia is to be believed, is a common abbreviation of the word Christmas. The ‘mas’ part is from the Latin-derived Old English word for Mass. The ‘X’ comes from the Greek letter Chi — the first letter in the Greek word for Christ.
