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."
meaning of Amen in Prayers
The word 'Amen' found in
prayers is a Hebrew word meaning firm and faithful. The literal
translation is 'so be it' and is used where one person confirms
the words of another, and adds his wish for success to the
other's vows and predictions.
