The word Xmas was first used in the mid-1500s.
The ‘X’ in word Xmas literally means Christ and comes from the Greek letter Χ (Chi). According to a legend, emperor Constantine, on the eve of his great battle against Maxentius, had a vision that led him to create a military banner with the first two letters of Christ on it: ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ (Christ in Greek) X (Chi) and Ρ (Rho).
