Why do people shorten Christmas to Xmas? Is this abbreviation done in order to DISREPECT Jesus and to remove him from the holiday? Abbreviating the word Christmas to Xmas does not ‘cut Jesus short’ as your Emailed question suggested. xmas wallpapers . Before we explain this, let us first discover where the “X” in the abbreviation came from and then we will go back fifty years or so when the idea to shorten the name of the holiday seems to have first caught on.

The word for Christ in the Greek is Christos. xmas wallpapers . In Greek, the twenty-second letter of their alphabet is written as “X” and is pronounced CHI. It is the first Greek letter in the word for Christ. Many years ago, retailers realized they could save both space and ad costs by shortening the word Christmas to Xmas using the letter X to replace the letters “Christ.” After a few years of this practice, however, the religious community countered with the slogan that called for Christ’s name to be put BACK into the holiday. Generally, they succeeded, especially since advertising layouts no longer depended on the number of letters in a word.

Changing the Christmas holiday’s name to Xmas does not disrepect the Lord. This is primary because most people (whether they go to church or not) realize Christ never really was in the holiday in the first place. xmas wallpapers . Most know that its origin is based on pagan, not Christian, beliefs and practices. For example, the celebration uses pagan sex symbols (orbs placed on the tree) to commemorate our Savior’s birth.

These facts about the most popular holiday in the world should be no surprise to most people, since every year we are reminded by the media and even ministers and pastors that Jesus was not born anywhere near December 25. xmas wallpapers . In fact, a good argument can be made that he was born in the FALL of the year, around our September – October period, in 5 B.C. The date of December 25 was picked by the Catholic Church many years ago because it was when the pagans had an important festival. The thinking was that if the church adopted some pagan holidays and stripped off some of the more blatant non-Christian activities (“Christianizing” it in a sense) it would be in a better position to attract the pagans and have them convert. Think of this as a membership-building program, where the goal is to build the church’s membership.
