Merry Christmas!

We had a heated discussion about this tonight at our house!  Whether you believe it or not, Christmas began as a CHRISTIAN holiday...

Twas the month before ChristmasWhen all through our land,
Not a Christian was praying
*Nor taking a stand.*
See, the PC Police had taken away,
The reason for Christmas - no one could say.
The children were told by their schools not to sing,
About Shepherds and Wise Men
And Angels and things.
It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say
December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.
Yet the shoppers were ready
With cash, checks and credit
Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod,
Something was changing, something quite odd!
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa,
In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down
At Lowe's the word Christmas -
*Was no where to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penney's and Sears,
You won't hear the word Christmas;
It won't touch your ears.
Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty
Are words that were used to intimidate me.
Now Daschle, Now Darden,
Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter
To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace
The true Gift of Christmas
Was exchanged and discarded
The Reason for the Season, stopped before it started.
So as you celebrate 'Winter Break'
Under your 'Dream Tree'
Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say.
not Happy Holiday !

  1. I hope the move to separate church and state doesn't take away our faith...if so we have a weak faith. Also, I don't think any company can take away the reason for the season. It doesn't matter if Lowe's uses the word Christmas, they can't take away our own reasons for celebrating Christmas.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. We appreciate it.
