As I age I become more and more disgusted by this holiday. My reasons have nothing to do with Jesus or the Pagans.

You summed it up best with 5 simple words.

Plus, This thread explains why we, as Christians, celebrate the birth of Christ during Christmas time.

I'll admit, I'm cutting and pasting.

Quote:
I have no doubt that some people write "Xmas" because they are too busy or too lazy to write out the whole word. And no doubt some secular people, who are just as uninformed as Christians, see "Xmas" as a way to avoid writing "Christ." And certainly there are secular and commercial motives in the fact that "XMAS" appears in ads and signs because it can be larger and more attention getting in the same amount of space (more bang for the buck). But those factors do not take away the thoroughly Christian origin of the word "Xmas." In this instance, all of the hype and hysteria over supposedly taking Christ out of Christmas by writing "Xmas" instead of spelling out "Christmas" is both uninformed and misdirected.

Abbreviations used as Christian symbols have a long history in the church. The letters of the word "Christ" in Greek, the language in which the New Testament was written, or various titles for Jesus early became symbols of Christ and Christianity. For example, the first two letters of the word Christ (cristoV, or as it would be written in older manuscripts, CRISTOS) are the Greek letters chi (c or C) and rho (r or R). These letters were used in the early church to create the chi-rho monogram (see Chrismons), a symbol that by the fourth century became part of the official battle standard of the emperor Constantine.
The author Goes on and says......

Quote:
In any case, by the fifteenth century Xmas emerged as a widely used symbol for Christmas. In 1436 Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press with moveable type. In the early days of printing typesetting was done by hand and was very tedious and expensive. As a result, abbreviations were common. In religious publications, the church began to use the abbreviation C for the word "Christ" to cut down on the cost of the books and pamphlets. From there, the abbreviation moved into general use in newspapers and other publications, and "Xmas" became an accepted way of printing "Christmas" (along with the abbreviations Xian and Xianity). Even Webster’s dictionary acknowledges that the abbreviation Xmas was in common use by the middle of the sixteenth century.

Challenge Bible statements with counter intuitive evidence, argue points, point out contradictions, etc., just bring some intellegent discussion to the table. Being a shit stick to everyone every post just make you look like what you are: a low life mouth breather who's world circles around their penis and mud bogger.

Get with the program. There are a lot of intellegent people that frequent this site. Start using your brain for something other than a pot smoke filtering mechanism. Once you start shitting up other threads, the vultures around here are going to swoop in and tear you up.

I say give this man a retard badge.

Christmas used to be a Pagan holiday celebrating the changing of the seasons. Christianity stole it and decided that would be the day to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

X is the Greek letter that translates to Christ. In the 16th century they commonly used X to abbreviate words like Christianity and Christian.

Dear sweet Baby Jesus, You said something true. But also something that was gone over in the beginning of the thread.
