    In your advertisement, you took Christ out of Christmas.

    Not really, X is an accepted and recognized symbol of Christ.

    USAGE NOTE Xmas has been used for hundreds of years in religious writing, where the X represents a Greek chi, the first letter of Χριστος, "Christ." In this use it is parallel to other forms like Xtian, "Christian." But people unaware of the Greek origin of this X often mistakenly interpret Xmas as an informal shortening pronounced (ĕksPRIMARY_STRESSməs). Many therefore frown upon the term Xmas because it seems to them a commercial convenience that omits Christ from Christmas.

    In your complaint, you took Winter Solstice out of Winter Solstice.

    Yep the early christians never celebrated christmas, one of those concessionsmade during constatine so that pagans wouldn't loose all their holidays. Even through the middle agessome christian european nations didn't celebrate christmas.

    Jesus's birth was probably in October. And about 2 years earlier than what our current caculator would make it seem it was.

    .....but the well wishing, ofbeing wished Merry Christmas is taken to heart and I hope all have a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year.

    Why? Does your state prohibit your first ammendment right also?

    All I was saying was that if a shirt was sold by the owners of this site that conveyed a definite message about OC, I would purchase it.

    I had a fella ask me loudly one time "HEY WHAT DO YOU NEED THE GUN FOR" I was in the proper setting for my unpracticed response which came out with authority "BECAUSE MY HOLSTER LOOKS LIKE **** WITHOUT IT" not something I would wear around town but we should have a thread to come up with t-shirt sayings and the like. perhaps call it the idea thread,
