It was most commonly used as shorthand as well. Monks had to write out sermons, and copies of the Snoopy and Charlie Christmas begin with Christ sweater, and since christ is referred to a couple thousand times, they just started using x because it was much faster. I dont care about the origins personally. Its how I celebrate now. A lot of people celebrate holidays in their own way. I watched a show on how Christmas evolved and know its changed.

Best Snoopy and Charlie Christmas begin with Christ sweater
But me and my family celebrate it as a celebration of Snoopy and Charlie Christmas begin with Christ sweater. We also share gifts, decorate, eat meals, and just continue family traditions. There are those who maintain the early Church forced the changes. All I can say is sorry about that but they’re all dead and we’re here. Let’s be kind to each other. I’ll do the same for them. If they don’t like Christmas, I’d be equally pleased and considerate in return if they keep that opinion to themselves.
As it is, I probably don’t celebrate Christmas the way many Christians do. This isn’t to say I talk it down or go around being angry and grim. I also don’t go on drinking binge. It means how I hold it in my heart is what works for me. I wish people a merry Christmas in an effort to share my joy during the season. If they tell me they are of a different belief, I try to know what’s appropriate to say instead. It’s not always easy but I try.
