The plural of "Christmas"; is "Christmasses", surely?

Just seen a poster for a new film called "Four Christmases"

This looks wrong, shouldn't there be an extra "s"?

<brain hurts>

It does look funny as we don't usually see christmas written as a plural. But it is indeed correct. It does not need another 's' as the 'es' does the job.
Hope that helps smile.

It looks odd

<tries to think of other similar plurals with another "s" but brain is far too cold>

Should it not be 'Christmas's'? wink

I think Christmases is right.
