The Xmas myth - not Christmas

The Xmas myth
It has often been said that using the abbreviation 'Xmas' is actually offensive as it removes 'Christ' from the word.
However, the letter 'X' is actually the same as the letter 'Chi' in Greek, which translates to 'Christ' - therefore, when you use the shortened version, you are still acknowledging Jesus.
Xmas fact!
