Mbo - I have to disagree with you. (though I have heard it rationalized that way many times.) Most people agree that the shift to xmas has been primarily driven by a marketing movement to make the holy day a secular holiday. And "xmas" for "Christmas" is a recent phenomenan - within my lifespan. Following that reasoning, it would be MUCH more logical for us to have tmas and t-tian. - Unless you are equating the "x" with the greek chi, which I believe is more equivilant of the english "c"
