    It’s a shame that many have forgotten the meaning of Christmas. Many non-Christians celebrate Christmas, even though they do not believe in Jesus or God! And some have the cheek to say that Christmas should be renamed Xmas because they don’t believe in the birth of Jesus, yet the whole celebration started with him!
    I also think that as well as celebrating the birth of Jesus, it’s also important as a time of spending with loved ones. Jesus was brought into the world, and became part of a family, with Mary, Joseph, and God. Likewise we should treasure our happy moments with our loved ones.

    The “X” comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, translated as “Christ”.
    I originally thought they were trying to take Christ out of Christmas as well but after doing more research i found this out!
