The Meaning of Christmas
"Christmas" signifies "Christ's Mass," meaning the festival of
the Nativity of Christ, and the word has been variously spelt at
different periods. The following are obsolete forms of it found
in old English writings: Crystmasse, Cristmes, Cristmas,
Crestenmes, Crestenmas, Cristemes, Cristynmes, Crismas, Kyrsomas,
Xtemas, Cristesmesse, Cristemasse, Crystenmas, Crystynmas,
Chrystmas, Chrystemes, Chrystemasse, Chrystymesse, Cristenmas,
Christenmas, Christmass, Christmes. Christmas has also been
called NoŽl or Nowel. As to the derivation of the word NoŽl,
some say it is a contraction of the French nouvelles meaning
tidings, les bonnes nouvelles, that is "The good news of the
Gospel"; others take it as an abbreviation of the Latin dies
natalis meaning "the birthday."
