What is the X in X-mas?

still small voice

One's conscience, as in I'd love to go but a still small voice tells me I really have to stay home and work. The term comes from the Bible (I Kings 19:12), where Elijah hears his own inner voice: “And after the earthquake a fire ... and after the fire a still small voice.”
