What Is Christmas?
What is Christmas? The word Christmas to many has become a cliche and the meaning behind the word has been lost. When studying the origin of the word Christmas I found it to renew or deepen my thoughts and feelings about this Holiday season! Christ which is Christós, meaning "the anointed one") is a title for the saviour and redeemer who would bring salvation. Then the mas part of Christmas actually comes from the word Maesse which means festival. The word later became Mass.
