    Is the X a deliberate ploy used by liberals to remove Christ from Christmas?

    There is no Christ in Christmas; it’s a pagan ceremony of the Sun god which was adopted by the early church and translated to a “mass” for Christ by the Vatican.

    Relax.

    Christmas is a cash cow and I refuse to partisipate.

    Those that are able to read will notice that Christ has been replaced with an X.

    It's good for the economy. Unfortunately it commercializes Christmas. That's why we hear it said "keep Christ in Christmas".

    Christ is in the heart. Christmas is an event marking the birth of the saviour. It's not exactly Jesus' birthday. It's not a birthday party. It's just a holiday. A day off from work. A time for family and friends to celebrate the joys of living.

    Merry Christmas

    The X is short for the cross I suppose. The cross (the shape) itself bein* another superstitious symbol.

    For those having exceedingly simplistic views, what other possible explanation could there be?

    By and large, fundamentalist Christians operate on the level of a ten-year-old. It's why so many fundamentalist Christians support Trump - people like people like themselves.

    No.

    Instead of creating silly threads why not invest that time in learning about the etymology of words.

    Many things are what we make them, it is a day, it can be about Christ, family and friends, or so many other things. I wish everyone a merry Christmas and hope your day is filled with love, life, family, friends, and may the mercy love and grace of God find you, filling your hearts to over flowing.

    You mean like where did the word God come from?

    From the imagination of primitive, prehistoric and superstitious ape like humans?

    Homoapeiens? 🤷🏻‍♂️ 😉

    Traditionally, I believe Easter was a more celebrated Christian holiday.

    It still is in E. Europe.
