It’s that time of year again when everywhere I look, I see the abbreviation "Xmas".

Now, I understand the history behind it and it has become second nature to mentally substitute a "Christ" for the "X".

But what happens if this mental substitution spills over into other X-words?

Microsoft would be the manufacturers of the Christbox (as well as Windows Christ P), Bryan Singer would be the director of Christ-men, my Mac would be running OS Christ and this website would be written in ChristHTML.

Have you published a response to this? :
