X can serve as shorthand for KISS
I often see the X followed by an O meaning "hug". I love to see those at the bottom of a letter I've received.
During the month of December, I sometimes see a shorthand version of the word "Christmas" written as Xmas. I disliked seeing it until I read that the X was a symbol for the cross turned sideways. Whether or not the person who wrote it knows about this "cross" definition, I have decided to read it that way.
What do you think of first when you see the letter X?
