    I'm wondering if Jesus ever ate a Christmas ham.

    This abbreviation for Christmas is of Greek origin. The word for Christ in Greek is Xristos. During the 16th century, Europeans began using the first initial of Christ's name, "X" in place of the word Christ in Christmas as a shorthand form of the word. Although the early Christians understood that X stood for Christ's name, later Christians who did not understand the Greek language mistook "Xmas" as a sign of disrespect.

    Okay, hib...willing to admit that you mistook the meaning of "X" in Xmas now?

    OMFG this is the most hilarious thread I have ever read! Everyone knows we pagans had this holiday first! You Xtians stole it from us in order to deceive us into converting to believe in your god. Aside from that even by your own Xtian writings you have had hard evidence to prove you are completely wrong in your assertion. As my hero bugs bunny would say "What a Maroon."

    Oh “Xmas” is from Satan,

    As some so like to say,

    It’s just verbal masturbatin’

    ‘bout a certain random day.

    Some say the X stands for the Cross

    Some say, “No that’s a farce!”

    They’re the self-appointed Godly Boss

    Just what is up their arse?

    Perhaps a corncob’s lodged real tight

    And that’s what makes them pick

    I’d like to help them if I might

    Extract it with a stick!

    Yes Christ did come to set us free

    In Him, not laws we hope.

    To Hibbie I say solemnly, ”Who died and made you Pope?!”

    Hey at Christmas we eat ham. So in my faith we can eat ham (pork version).

    Now that is the best!!!!!
