Remember my Christian friends why we celebrate Christmas. It's the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ ♥ Beloved Christ is IN THE WORD CHRISTMAS ♥ Please don't discard Christ in the word by saying/writing x-mas :`((( That's sooo sad to see/hear :`(((

oh yeah you are right! I never say x-mas, in fact I kinda hate it but you know I need to use it sometimes for abbreviation...

While I agree with the sentiment of not writing "X-mas", for me it's because I have a general disdain for abbreviations. But I take issue with the idea that people writing "X-mas" are not honoring Christ. The "X" is, after all, a representation of the cross. So writing "X-mas" - while in my mind is somewhat lazy - actually honors Christ's sacrifice for all of us in the way that the name of the holiday, Christmas, does not. While the holiday is a day picked to commemorate Christ's birth (which almost certainly didn't happen in December), the ultimate reason we celebrate is that His coming to earth ended 33 years later with His sacrifice for us on the cross, restoring us to relationship with the Father despite our sin. "x-mas" may be lazy, but it is a stronger focus on Jesus' mission and ultimate sacrifice than "Christmas" (literally, "Messiah's birthday").
