Xmas is insulting to many people including myself. Merry Christmas please. Christmas is a national holiday.

No offence Charles, but not everyone celebrates Christmas...

  Barry that is quite obvious.  However does not give license to insult the Christian majority who do. Still a national holiday to be celebrated by all. It is a Holiday of giving .Give and be happy.   Xmas is an insulting term to ones that do, period. That simple. Has nothing to do with if one celebrates it or not. I felt it is my duty to say so. Tolerance counts.
I am a bit surprised you do not see that.

I found this pretty interesting... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xmas

No real reason to be offended.

Thanks, Barry! I had no idea about the origin. I just assumed it was a shortcut of sorts.
As to Festivus, Dave. I hope you’re not challenging me regarding the feats of strength. If so, my white flag is already out.... 🏳

 :rofl:  X'mas to me is just an abbreviation, as I'm lazy.  How that bothers anyone is fine by me; I'm celebrating my own holiday, as anyone would celebrate his/hers the way he/she likes.....  There's no reason to be a grouch this time of the year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ENJOY!
