Early call for .CHRISTMAS/XMAS

Post by eagle driver » Thu Dec 19, 2019 3:32 pm

Thought I would get this in early, what with Xmas looming and the weather being as bad as it is some of us may not be on line by the 25 th seeing as there are bound to be some flooding .

A very merry Christmas to you too, I've no idea why you have to call it 'XMAS' though, maybe this is the answer (with thanks to Google) :-

"Why is it shortened to Xmas?
Chi (or X) is the first letter in the Greek word for Christ. In the early days of the Christian church, Christians used the letter X as a secret symbol to indicate their membership in the church to others. If you know the Greek meaning of X, Xmas and Christmas essentially mean the same thing: Christ + mas = Christmas"

A very merry Christmas to all of you and your families.

As for x mas it's the liberals and atheists trying to take religion out of the holiday and Google is part of it

Sorry for an early post but xmas starts early in retail. Merry Christmas to you all. This is my first post so I would like to thank you to all. The recent updates from the fence at Lakenheath (Heritage jets), Northolt (Particularly the POTUS visit) and Fairford (U-2 movements) have got me back into my hobby, as I am unable to get to bases frequently. Your movement updates are truly appreciated!
