It just means Christmas. It's easier to write if you put an X. No one is trying to take the precious CHRIST out of Christmas. For God's sake, lighten up. Your religion's not going to die because we say Xmas instead of Christmas.
"Merry Xmas, Mr. SupersensitiveChristian."

"Get out of my house, Devilchild."

The festive holiday in the tv show Futurama. Having created a robot Santa to carry out the work of a real Santa, an error in his programming causes him to judge that everyone is naughty. Xmas is therefore a holiday of fear, where all hide from Robot Santa as he tries to kill everyone he finds on xmas day.
The xmas song! (to the tune of Santa Clause is coming to town)
He Knows when you are sleeping
He knows when you're on the can
He'll hunt you down and blast you're ass from here to Pakistan!
You Better not move you better not move
You're better off dead, I'm telling you dude
Santa Clause is gunning you down!

merry xmas everybody!!!

Shortened form of Christmas. Some will tell you that this abbreviation "takes the Christ out of Christmas" but you should not listen to these people since they are probably right-wing zealots who will try to convert you.
Xmas makes poor kids cry when they realize the rich kids get all the good toys, all the good clothes, and all the good cars.

Abbreviated form of Christmas. The letter "X" was used by ancient Christians under persecution as a sign of their faith, being a physical representation of the cross. Underground meeting spots usually had an "X" marked on the sidewalk in front. Since celebrating Christmas was illegal and could result in martyrdom, Xmas was an acceptable name for the holiday.
Some super-conservative Christians are so uneducated on their faith's history that you wonder how they can have the balls to persecute others based on spelling, i.e., X-mas.

The multi-religious or non religious version of Christmas. X being the variable 'holiday of choice', or even lack there of. This holiday is celebrated similarly to Christmas, but without the christian beliefs. It is a time of gift giving and spending time with family.
Atheist Jane: Merry X-mas!
Christian Jim: Hahaha, since you're celebrating Christmas it therefore means you believe in Jesus Christ!
Atheist Jane: No way! the X in X-mas can represent anything, not just Christianity so ha!
Christian Jim: touche.
