You wonder why I mention “Xmas”
(It’s not because I love it this much!)
But when I’m asked to write about
A thing, I will without a doubt
Put all my time and energy
To make sure it’s done right by me!
And with my subjects I do find
I dig real deep, with that in mind
With “Xmas” I was at a loss
Just why the “Christ” became a cross
A misconception It seems a given
Is that the “X” rebuked religion
But in the 16th century
The “X” was truly meant to be
A Roman Catholic sign for Christ
Its use is proper when one writes
But still debate’s around this letter
But with this info, we know better
Don’t you like to learn things new?
And now we know this cool thing too!
(And here you thought it weird because
You thought I’d write ‘bout Santa Clause!)
