Xmas is not an Insult

We Christians can be a touchy lot, but let's take care not to be offended when someone refers to Christmas as "Xmas." This abbreviation for Christmas has a long heritage and is rooted in homage to Christ (whose honorific "X" is an abbreviation for Kristos in Greek). See the Wikipedia article for more information.
