In addition to what others have said, I'd like to mention that this is a 
phonetic transliteration, not one of meaning. So I mean that QISmaS fits 
the sound of christmas, which is something like kris-mas. The word 
"christ" is not "kris" in English, it's [kraist].

So if you stay in the game, a Klingon might have headr of christmas and 
then call it with his words {QISmaS}. I he was told that this is the 
"birth of Jesus Christ", he'd probably remember it as "QayIS" or so - 
but definitely not {QIS}.
