Things I Hate: People Who Don’t Understand “Xmas”

You know, I could write a list of things that I love. Instead, I decided to go the negative route, and list some things I hate. Note that this list should be taken with tongue firmly in cheek, and the things in said list are greatly exaggerated.

People who think “Xmas” is a way to take “Christ” out of “Christmas”

From Wikipedia:

The “X” comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, translated as “Christ“.[2]

There is a common misconception that the word Xmas stems from a secular attempt to remove the religious tradition from Christmas[3] by taking the “Christ” out of “Christmas”.

People who CONSTANTLY post every single day on Facebook/Twitter to “Keep Christ in Christmas” drive me. IN. SANE. Anybody who actually pronounces “X-mas” “EX-mas” is retarded and you shouldn’t listen to them anyways. If you’re so holy, then don’t even celebrate Christmas! It’s a pagan holiday, you know. Although you probably didn’t, because YOU THINK X-MAS IS PRONOUNCED EX-MAS AND IT’S A PLOT BY THE GOVERNMENT TO DESTROY CHRISTIANS AND THROW THEM INTO GAS TANKS AND  CONCENTRATION CAMPS AND OBAMA IS REALLY A TERRORIST.

Also, most of those people do not like Catholics. WELL I’VE GOT NEWS FOR YOU, BUDDY: The “Mas” in “Christmas” comes from the word “Mass”, as in the place Catholics go to worship. So you should just call Christmas “Jesuschurch”.
