Associated Press gives the gift of correctness for the holidays

Just in time for the non-denominational gift giving season, the Associated Press has published a style guide for common holiday terms. For example, Santa Claus, St. Nicholas, and Kriss Kringle (yes, two s’s) are all ways to refer to the jolly guy himself. But for whatever reason, “Xmas” as an abbreviation is frowned on upon. Well, merry (lowercase) Christmas to you, then. Love, Xine.
