OK, I need the brain trust opinion here. I sent out an e-mail several years ago to a friend and closed with "Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year". Well I get back a reply stating that such a thing was not proper and inexcusable. I, of course, meant no such thing to be an insult but rather to shorten a long word (important to a poor typer). I have seen Xmas posted everywhere and it is usually done to save room. Basically I was taking Christ out of Christmas according to my friend. Not my intention at all. Anyway I still use Xmas occasionally and it pops into my head that I got chewed out every time I do so. Is anybody on the forum offended and think this is something I need to drop or was he making a big deal out of nothing?
