Christmas or Xmas?

Christmas is also sometimes known as Xmas. Some people don't think it's correct to call Christmas 'Xmas' as that takes the 'Christ' (Jesus) out of Christmas. (As Christmas comes from Christ-Mass, the Church service that celebrated the birth of Jesus.)But that is not quite right! In the Greek language and alphabet, the letter that looks like an X is the Greek letter chi / Χ (pronounced 'kye' - it rhymes with 'eye') which is the first letter of the Greek word for Christ, Christos.The early church used the first two letters of Christos in the Greek alphabet 'chi' and 'rho' to create a monogram (symbol) to represent the name of Jesus. This looks like an X with a small p on the top: ☧The symbol of a fish is sometimes used by Christians (you might see a fish sticker on a car or someone wearing a little fish badge). This comes from the time when the first Christians had to meet in secret, as the Romans wanted to kill them (before Emperor Constantine became a Christian). Jesus had said that he wanted to make his followers 'Fishers of Men', so people started to use that symbol.When two Christians met, one person drew half a basic fish shape (often using their foot in the dust on the ground) and the other person drew the other half of the fish. The Greek word for fish is 'Ikthus' or 'Ichthys'. There are five Greek letters in the word. It can also make up a sentence of Christian beliefs 'Ie-sous Christos Theou Huios So-te-r' which in English means "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour". The second letter of these five letter is X or Christos!So Xmas can also mean Christmas; but it should also be pronounced 'Christmas' rather than 'ex-mas'!

Why Heineken beer so popular worldwide?

Gerard Adriaan Heineken wanted to create a clean lager beer, and started brewing the Heineken beer in 1873 at an old brewery in Amsterdam. After years of hard work, it became Holland's first premium lager beer.  And 142 years later, it became the world’s number one international premium beer.So what is it that makes Heineken so popular? It's because they do things differently:1. The Heineken you order in Malaysia tastes exactly like the one in the NetherlandsThey taste exactly the same. For real. Not just in Malaysia, but across all 192 countries where Heineken is available. That's because they will send a sample of the beer produced in each brewery back to the Netherlands for inspection.  And that's how they make sure you get the same quality of Heineken no matter where you are.2. They brew their beer longer than othersThe average beer brewing process stops after two weeks. However, at Heineken, they brew their beer for a solid 28 days!  Why? This is so that the beer gets that beautiful golden-yellow colour and a refreshing taste.3. They only need three natural ingredientsYup, just three! All they need are malted barley, hops, and water. But they have to be really pure and natural. 4. There's also a bit of magic that goes into the brewing processThat magic is called the Heineken A-yeast, which was discovered in 1886.  The A-yeast is added to the mixture of the three natural ingredients to initiate the fermentation process, and removed when the process ends after 28 days. This is is how Heineken beer gets its signature balanced, crisp, and rich flavour.5. Every batch of beer brewed must get the seal of approval from Heineken's Master Brewer, or else... According to Heineken's global Master Brewer Willem van Waesberghe, every batch of Heineken beer brewed must be inspected, tested, and approved by their Master Brewers before it goes to the stores and bars.  If a batch of beer is rejected, then they'll have no choice but to go through the 28-day brewing process again.6. And it takes 15 years to be a Master BrewerThink you have what it takes to be a Master Brewer? You gotta train for 15 years to be one. The Heineken beer recipe has been the same since it was first brewed in 1873, and the Master Brewers are the ones who guard it. 7. To get the correct foam level, just refer to the red star on the Heineken glassSee the horizontal line of the red star? That's where the foam level starts. Nothing more, nothing less.  Not many people know this, but having the right amount of foam is important as it protects your beer from oxidation. That's how you keep your beer tasting fresh and crisp for a longer time.8. Heineken was one of the first brewers to sell their beer in green bottlesThe first few brewers to sell their beer in bottles all sold them in brown ones. Wanting to distinguish his beer from the rest, the founder decided to sell Heineken beer in green bottles - the same shade as the ones we see in the stores and bars now!9. Some of these bottles can be used to build houses tooThese are called WOBO bottles, which were commissioned by the Heineken founder's grandson to help the poor people of Curaçao build houses using upcycled materials.  Unlike the usual beer bottles, these have flat surfaces on all sides and a concave bottom. The features allow the bottles to be used like LEGO bricks, interlocking with each other for stability. He even tested the bottles by building a prototype house! And this was done in the 60s, before sustainable housing became a hot topic!
