Oh, I didn't know that. Well, no one should feel slighted if that's the case. I never felt insulted by Xmas instead of Christmas and now I never will knowing that little tidbit of information.

Certainly didn't stop my friends from jumping down my throat about X'ing Christ out of Christmas.

Either way I am a Christian all the same and don't find it to be offensive. Of course I speak for myself as my friends have the opposite view.

I did find that whole thing about the 'x' looking symbol to be interesting, certainly didn't know that.

Certainly interesting, and it just goes to show how things become lost in translation when no one bothers to seek out the facts first.
