Do you dislike it when people abreviate Christmas with x-mas?

I don't know what to really say on this one. So what do you all think about this?

This is something that I sometimes have a problem with. I am old enough to remember when x-mas first started being used. I was brought up in a protestant church and remember the slogan that was used when people first started replacding "Christ" with an "X". We were told not to cross Christ out of Christmas. Because of my upbringing I have a hard time using this abreviation, just can't bring myself to write x-mas! It doesn't really bother me when others do so, just something I can't make my hand write!!

That's a great point. I think many religious people will have problems with people using x-mas.

But not all of us! *religious Christian who really doesn't care how people abbreviate it*

I use X-mas because it's easier to type and I've got arthritis and a sticky keyboard. And because it means the same thing. Why does it matter? It means the same thing, spelling doesn't matter much.

I agree with you. I don't know why people get so huffy about it. If I want to abbreviate it for the sake of it just being plain easier to write like that, then what is it to somebody else if I do so?? It's not like people are trying to diss Jesus or something.

I'd have to agree with you on that one. It is rather odd.

I have nothing against it but I don't like to use abreviations.
