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."
