I know #2 – just read about it. The “x” is the Greek letter (chi, I think?), which is the first letter in in the Greek word for “Christ”. So, when you put the “x” into Christmas, you’re NOT taking “Christ” out! LOL

I find it hilarious that X is actually older than Christ, seeing Greek is older than English 🙂
