Does Brooklyn know how to decorate? Fuggedaboutit!
This is our main downtown shopping street, seriously
decked out for the season. There are some who feel
that "Xmas" is not—shall we say—correct.
I'd point out (as Wikipedia says) that: The "-mas" part is from
the Latin-derived Old English word for "mass", while the "X" comes from the
Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek
word Χριστός, translated as "Christ." Seems okay to me.
