X in X’mas Means…!!

We see Xmas written nearly everywhere, from holiday advertisements to Christmas cards..And everyone will be thinking how the word x’mas came for Christmas. The word Christmas comes from the combination of the words ‘Christ’ and ‘mass’.

Then what is X in x’mas?

In the Greek alphabet, X is the symbol for the letter ‘chi.’ 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.
