Re: [bostonatheists] Godless Christmas

Actually, you and the person doing complaining are both wrong; the X is a long used and well accepted abbreviation for "Christ".  See following from snopes;

So it's maybe saving you some typing, but that's it.  You'll have to keep up your non-believe in silly mythology with rigor. :) :)

Happy winter celebration of your choice!
