All in the spirit. And cos there's no question on Christmas day !!

X-Y is a winter festival that was initially celebrated by the historical Germanic peoples as a pagan religious festival, though it was later absorbed into, and equated with, the Christian festival of Christmas. The festival was originally celebrated from late December to early January on a date determined by the lunar Germanic calendar. The festival was placed on December 25(/24) when the Christian (Julian) calendar was adopted. Some historians claim that the celebration is connected to the Wild Hunt or was influenced by Saturnalia, the Roman winter festival. The term "X" is still used in the Nordic Countries and to a lesser extent in English speaking countries to refer to Christmas. Customs such as the X log, X goat, X boar, X singing, and others stem from X. In modern times, X is observed as a cultural festival and also with religious rites by some Christians and by some Neopagans.

Just take it like a christmas gift. Give the X and the Y
