Heh. Want to really make heads spin?

Tell them that "X-mas" is an actual extolling of Christ, and not "taking Christ out of Christmas".

*history*

Χριστός is the Greek word for Christ. As it usually happens, people become lazy. The Greek are no different. After awhile, the -ριστός was dropped from the Greek word, and the letter chi soon became synonymous with "Christ".

"X-mas" became a stylization for Christmas because people wanted to focus on the *real* reason for the holiday (Christ obviously). So, they used the Greek symbol for Christ, thus creating "X-mas".

Well you go right ahead and tell Ms. Summers. I got your back from my office.

No you.

You're doing it wrong.

Fireball and eggnog.

Fireball in cinnamon whiskey. This concoction is amazing.
