Recently I have been asked why do I call myself XmasDolly, and not Christmas Dolly. Well, here’s the gospel truth!
I learned how to do the computer at the law firm I was working for (Raskin & Associates), and he had a computer there that was definitely a neanderthal of computers). It asked me for a ID name, and a password. I have been using the same ID name since September, 1991, and never gave it up. Sometimes I add numbers behind it sometimes I don’t. The ID name only let me use ten letters. I love Christmas, and my nickname is Dolly. Dolly has been there since I’ve been born. How would you shorten Christmas? I am a devote Catholic. I do not denounce Christ in any way shape or form! PASS THE WORD! I am NOT, and I repeat NOT denouncing Christmas or my Lord when I call myself XmasDolly! The word Xmas was just shortened because the computer would not take more letters! SHEESH!
I also googled it, and here’s the “STRAIGHT DOPE”!
Why is Christmas abbreviated Xmas?
Just wanted to keep that straight! AMEN!
OH, AND HEY EVERYBODY CHRISTMAS IS COMING SOON – DON’T BLINK! WOO HOO! THAT OUGHT TO MAKE Y’ALL FEEL BETTER! NOW IF ANYONE ELSE THINKS I’M SOME SORT OF HEATHEN STEP UP TO THE PLATE, SO I CAN RIP YOU A NEW ONE TOO!
JUST DON’T GET ME STARTED! BY THE WAY I WAS ALSO BAPTIZED CATHOLIC, MADE MY COMMUNION, AND CONFIRMATION, AND I WAS MARRIED BY A PRIEST! What else ya wanna know? Dang! I got to take a break! Sorry I shot off, but I love Christmas (Xmas), and my name is Dolly, and I love that name too because my Daddy gave it to me. So, let it rest!
