Christmas and Xmas

Just a hurried line . . . to tell a story which puts the contrast between OUR feast of the Nativity and all this ghastly "Xmas" racket at its lowest. My brother heard a woman on a bus say, as the bus passed a church with a Crib outside it, "Oh Lord! They bring religion into everything. Look—they're dragging it even into Christmas now!"

— C. S. Lewis, LETTERS TO AN AMERICAN LADY, (December 29, 1958), edited by Clyde Kilby. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1967, p.80.
