Since the phrase "Y" is a famous quote often spoken in the X films, fans commonly say "Z"(a slight variation of Y) on this day. Current day X fans were not the first to introduce the line "Z".

And finally..
8)
Once, a group of mexican soldiers killed the family and friends of a certain tribesman of America. 
He belonged to the Apache tribe. He was called Goyahkla. In revenge, he turned into a militant and 
killed almost every mexican guy who came across his way. However, towards the end, after a LOOOONGG pursuit, he surrendered to the US police.
It so happened that once, in a battle with few mexican soldiers, he stabbed an entire group of men to death. While he was doing so, the mexicans started praying(in spanish) to some
catholic saint St.Jerome. A few american soldiers nearby heard their shouts and thought it was the name of the guy stabbing them and thus his name 'X' remained. 

The name was  'immortalised' in History in a certain manner. However due to some controversies, it was given an official name Y.. 
Give X and Y.
