Merry Christmas everyone! Happy other holidays too, but since today is Christmas, that’s a good place to start.
Random Christmas fact: did you know that using Xmas for Christmas is hundreds of years old? The “X” stands for the Greek letter “chi” which is the first letter in the Greek spelling of “Christ”.
Anyway, I truly hope you have (or had) a great day, even if you don’t celebrate Christmas. At my friends’ house, we were talking about what Christmas means to each of us. Most people said two main things: it is a day to spend with family and it is a celebration of Jesus coming to Earth. However, another theme was that it is a time for reconciliation and restarting things. It is a day of hope. Or it can be, at least.
Thank you again for reading the blog and I hope you have a great season.
