Christians, please remember to pronounce Christmas correctly!
 
I am very offended by how many people pronounce Christmas as "Chrismas", as if we has a mass for some homer named Chris. We do call ourselves for Christians, not "Chrisians" so then why say "Chrismas"? :angry:

I suggest that all True Christians™ should pronounce Christmas as Christmas. I mean, do you really want to offend Jesus on His own birthday by not pronouncing the t in His name correctly? Such things could have dire consequences!

God Bless you, Ex, for pointing this out. I'm warning everyone I see about the consequences of not pronouncing Christmas properly.

Amen, Brother!

Words are very powerful and should be pronounced with care at all times, so we are not misunderstood by others.

So many mush-mouthed fools speak like they have a mouth full of sin these days. :(

I wonder, should we pronounce "Christmas" like in "Christian" (\ˈkris-chən, ˈkrish-\) or "Christ-mas" like in "Christ" (\ˈkrīst-məs\)?

That is so confusing, because we mispronounce our Sweet Lord's Holy Name each time we say "Christian!" :fear2:

God idea! :thumbsup:

I would like to propose /kraist' mʌs/ over /krist' mʌs/ as it preserves the :christ-fancy: sound
