Keeping Christ in Christmas
Several stores and persons use X-Mas to shorten Christmas. Some say that is taking Christ out of Christmas and some say the X comes from the Greek letter Chi - which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, which in English is Christ. OK - whatever - what are we doing to keep Christ in our Christmas celebrations?
