ABC Wednesday - X

Well, it’s ABC Wednesday again and this time we are on letter X. The last time that we had this letter, I posted X-ray. It was actually the x-ray result of my father and since I have no idea today on what are the things that start with letter X, I decided to google it and these are the words that I found through wikipedia.

So X… for Xenophile, Xenophobe, Xenophobia.
