Trivia of the day for December 24

Originally the X was not an X as we use it in the English alphabet; it was the Greek letter chi which looks very similar to an X.
The Greek letter X (chi) is the first letter of the Greek word for Christ, Xristos (Χριστός) so Xmas therefore means “Christ’s Mass” which is what the word Christmas actually means.
