Where does the X in Xmas come from?

I've read some discussions on the www about people boycotting sites that use Xmas instead of Christmas. Some ladies said they even deleted online Christmas Cards that said Xmas, because they thought those cards - and the people who sent them - were condemning Christ and forgetting "the real reason for the season" by not using the word Christmas.
Well, they are wrong!
X is the Greek letter "chi", the first letter of the Greek word Christos, or "anointed one". Transcribers copying the Scriptures by hand in the 4th century used "chi" or X as a helpful abbreviation for Christ. The cross shape added an extra level of symbolism and meaning.

Merry Xmas!
