Just slightly off topic...I really hate it when people use Xmas, is it really that tough to write CHRISTmas? Seriously? Even someone in my neighborhood, had a sign in their yard, "Keep Christ in Christmas" but wrote Merry Xmas with car chalk on their back windshield!

I'll contribute to the brief topic hijack if nobody minds.

I'm a bit of a folklorist--hence my profile name--so I can share a little etyology on the origin of using X in Xmas for you to give you a why it's done.

It didn't originate from the English use of X in the current alphabet, but goes back to the first century A.D. to the Greek usage of the letter X. The Greek X was called "Chi" (pronounced with a hard 'k'). And was the first letter of Greek word "Christos". In ancient Christian texts, you'll find X to abbreviate Christos or Jesus Christ.

In fact, it was a kind of code for the newborn Christian movement who were facing hard persecution in the first century, written on cave walls and secret meeting places to designate sacred locations et.al. Basically, it's been used since the birth of Christianity and in the early days you could say contributed to its survival.

So, from that information, using X has nothing to do with taking Christ out of Christmas but very much keeps Christ in Christmas.

The saying "Keeping Christ in Christmas" plays cleverly on the legitemate use of X, but of course refers to the materialization of Christmas that was given a huge push by Mr. Macy and television (which I think we can all agree annoys the piss out of us, no matter what our religious or non-religious background). Darn those TV Adverts!

I was gonna say that about Xmas too Storyseeker,but you bet me to it.Anytime someone says they hate when people take the Christ out of Christmas,I explain about the Greek thing.Not many people know it.

I am not religious and do not celebrate Christmas as a religious thing though and honestly it annoys me when people say "keep Christ in Christmas".

Haha! Geek minds think alike! (Greek?) It never bothered me since that's what it celebrates. Like taking the 'Thanks' out 'Thanksgiving', or the 'Labor' out of 'Labor Day'. It's more the strident tone by the inevetable militant few that's annoying. Though, I had a friend of mine declare she was forgoing Christmas for Modranect.


Oh, hey, before this thread gets too far off course, I had a clarification question: How many of the rattie pictures are we supposed to vote for? A favorite? That's what I ended up doing (I'm partial to singing Yoda).

I know that here on the forum Diamond used the X because of space constraints, and I really do appreciate the lesson, it just goes to show that you learn something new every day, and most times, when you are least expecting it.

But...uhmm can we vote more than once? There are so many cute pictures to vote from, I had a hard time picking just one?!

It is a multiple choice poll, and she hasnt said anything about no voting for more than one so I assume you can. After you have voted you cannot vote again

I have to say that I love all my rats past and present but the pic of lovely old Laila is special to me. She was one of my original half-wild, half domestic crew, and only at the end did she grow to love me and actually let me hold and pat her. She lived in my livingroom and I had special little houses made up for her (cardboard), dishes of water and food nearby, as to where she wanted to live that week. She had CHF and was the survivor of the entire family at 28 months. I miss her even years later...she was a very special lady.

I hope my new blues stay blue. But I'll post the pics call Blue Picutures. I had to get stone out becuase when I got the other one out he looked at me so sad like what about me. He is housed with Yoda his kids 2 Luke Staying Binks is leaving this spring still with my friend but will see when spring gets here, there 2 uncles, stone and Nova a patched siamese.

PS you can vote for more then one and keep voting again and again on the same one or diffrent
Dont forget to PM who you wish to have as the most cuttest, funnest, most mice in one pic, most rats in one pic, most Decrotive/ creative. Then at the end of 12 days I will count who got the most votes for what in my PMs and post along with the 1234th palces. This way every one has a chance and every one will win some type of title. But 1st place on the ploe will be 2010 rat or mouse for the year.
