Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Tracy and I got back from Christmas Eve service a little while ago – always my favorite of the year because of the good news and because of the traditional Christmas songs. And please don’t ever say "Xmas" because Christmas is about Christ – not Santa nor evergreens, but about His message that was His life.
So while you’re celebrating with family and friends remember the true meaning of Christmas and may the Holy Spirit fill you with peace and love that is also part of the holidays.
By the way, Tracy and I ordered a web camera to keep in touch with family and friends, more specifically because we got my brother one for Christmas. Ours isn’t here yet, but will be soon I suspect. If you have a broadband or3G dial-up connection and a web camera look Tracy or I up on MSN Messenger and we’ll see you then!

    Actually, the X refers back to greek (… which has often historically been used as an abbreviation for Christ (Χριστός in Greek). (Wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas). Didn’t know that until a couple weeks ago.

    Interesting indeed, though I wonder how true it is. Wikipedia has the stink of invalidity because anyone can edit it and I bet there’s enough people out there that try to justify taking "Christ" out of "Christmas". Correct or not, though, I still prefer "Christmas".
