Huh!?

If you're going to name your child Christmas ... the least you can do is SPELL it "Christmas".

How old was this customer? If that was my name I'd at least change the spelling.

actually its not anti christian.. it dates back thousands of years
Christmas is sometimes shortened to Xmas, an abbreviation that has a long history.[3] In early Greek versions of the New Testament, the letter Χ (chi), is the first letter of Christ (Χριστός). Since the mid-sixteenth century Χ, or the similar Roman letter X, was used as an abbreviation for Christ.[4]

Not true.

Lots of people say that, but Xmas is a perfectly legitimate spelling and it's been around almost as long as Christmas itself has been.
