Wikipedia has information unrelated to Futurama

In the year 3000, the use of the word "Christmas" to refer to the holiday on 25 December has been completely lost in the mists of time, and it has been replaced with the word "Xmas", pronounced "Ecks-Muss". As such, the day has lost all religious connotations it had in the past, and many traditions have been drastically changed. As pine trees are extinct, palm trees are traditonally decorated with festive lights. Being nude on Xmas seems to be quite popular. However, it is not wise to be outdoors after sundown on Xmas Eve, because you'll probably be killed by Robot Santa (2ACV04).

The origins of Xmas are told in The Story of Xmas; a play about Ebenezer Omicronian - who is visited by six ghosts that foretell the coming of Zombie Jesus and reveals the reason the holiday changed its name. Mom is somehow involved (US#006).
