The Walrus at work Help: Xmas Card joke idea needed (95* d) RE: Help: Xmas Card joke idea needed 04 Dec 01


Guest,

Xmas is an accepted abbrieviation for Christmas, deriving (If I recall correctly) from the use of the Greek letter Rho (looks like a capital P) superimposed over the Greek letter Chi (looks like capital X), however, as there is no Roman letter which combines both letters, over time, (Chi)(Rho)mas has becom wriitten as Xmas.

regards

Walrus
