Xmas

"Xmas" is a common abbreviation for "Christmas." It originated as a hand-written abbreviation for "Christmas" by combining the Latin derivative of the Old English word for "mass" and the Greek letter Chi, or "X." The latter was used because it is the first letter in the word "Xριστός," Greek for "Christ."
