Let’s put the ‘Christ’ in ‘Christmas’

Christmas is a fantastic season for all of us. It gives us that much needed holiday from a long work year. The gifts on the trees, the sharing and the carols all get us into that “X-massy” mood.

But, aren’t we forgetting something?

Three posts on IBN got me thinking about how most of us have forgotten the real essence of Christmas – Christ!

What makes me say this about three random news stories?

The headlines. All use the word “X-mas”.

If you use the word “X-mas” today, without doubt it means that you are referring to Christmas.

But, does everyone know what the meaning of Christmas? Apparently not all the children in Germany. I read a survey a few days back in a newspaper that this is also the case with UK (can’t find the link).

In the first case children were surveyed and in the second teenagers. I would really love to see the survey results when adults are polled.

Do you know the true meaning of Christmas? Leave a comment and tell me.

As for “X-mas”, that is not the word I use. Always use Christmas. That’s the first step to ensuring that the real reason of Christmas still exists.

  1. Perhaps we should put Yeshua or Yehoshua back in Christmas. Although He is known as Jesus today, it actually was not His name! Greeks started calling Him Lesus as Christianity started to spread and then Germans spelled it Jesus and that?s where the English language gets it today.

    Merry Yeshuamas! Er Christmas!
