Because using an "X" Means "Cross" and *Trying not to be religious* Jesus died on a Cross so Instead of saying Christmas, it's shortend to "X-Mas"

its a bit like how some people say ok in many different ways:
for example:
 
Okay
Ok
O.K
 
either way its spelt, it sounds the same, so i say leave it be.

Maybe people say it because they don't believe in that particular faith, and don't want it to be referenced.
I know you'll say that the whole holiday is for the celebration of his birth, but it's not about that, and it hasn't been for a long time.
