How to Pronounce, Holiday

The word holiday derived from the notion of “Holy Day”, and gradually evolved to its current form. The word holiday comes from the Old English word hāligdæg. The word originally referred only to special religious days. In modern use, it means any special day of rest or relaxation, as opposed to normal days away from work or school.

Definition of holiday: holy day: the day or days of a religious festival.

Ho”ly*day`\, n. 1. A religious festival.

2. A secular festival; a holiday.

Born-again Christians, I know majority of us, when pronounce, Happy Holidays (hóllə dày) But Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Passover. Are not a secular festival. We need to speak, Happy Holydays. This brings me to my next point.

Correct english, you need to switch the first “y” in holydays, and switch it to an “i”. Now looking holidays where do you get holla-days? Again, the pagans switched word, like the word, Christian (CHRIST-EE-uh n) not [ kríschən ].

Now, Valentines Day is not a “religious day,” this is a secular day. Everyday is the day of Love.

So please pronounce holiday (holy day) Happy Holy days!!! Jesus bless you!

How to Pronounce, Christian

We have seen the word ‘Christian,’ in the Bible and its been around for a while. People can write a word down and not hear someone pronouce the word correctly. If in the Bible days, they pronounced ‘Christian’ different than they do today, we will never know. We didn’t have a voice recorder.

My question is are we pronouncing Christian correct? We, for several years have pronounced Christian as (Chris-tian) [ kríschən ]. Is that the correct way to pronounce it? I personally believe when first Christians came about in the Bible, ‘Christian’ was pronounced different than what we say it today.

Christian means like Christ, not like Chris. As we take a closer look.

Think about it, look at the word, (Chris-tian) [ kríschən ]. Who is Chris? I don’t serve and worship Chris, but CHRIST, I do. I believe we have missed pronounce Christian.  I believe this how we should pronounce it, (CHRIST-EE-uh n) or (CHRIST-chun), probably (CHRIST-EE-uh n) more, because if you break (CHRIST-chun) down, the (chun) is referring to (tian) then your left with Chris.

I personally believe the pagans may have started this, why? When pronounce (Chris-tian) [ kríschən ] there is no CHRIST, someone took pronunciation of CHRIST out of the word, Christian.

So instead of pronouncing it  (Chris-tian) [ kríschən ], lets pronounce it (CHRIST-EE-uh n) and share this with all of our brothers and sisters.
