XMAS panos

We had a wonderful Christmas with Al’s family in Chester where I was able to take a walk before dinner and the snow fall. I know nothing about my family home pre- Civil War, only that the homestead was ten miles south of Richmond on the Richmond and Petersburg Railroad at Proctors Creek. It must have been very close by to this also?

    “Christmas,” 1551, X’temmas, wherein the X is an abbreviation for Christ in Christmas, from first letter of Gk. The earlier way to abbreviate it was Xp- or Xr-, corresponding to “Chr-,” and the form Xres mæsse for “Christmas” appears in the “Anglo-Saxon Chronicle” (c.1100).
