A Christmas Poem


I'm getting into the mood!!!
My good friend e-mailed this to me. I thought I would share. Makes you think if nothing else. And that's not a bad thing!



Twas the month before Christmas*
>
>
>
> *When 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 Penny'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*
>
>
>
> *Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS ,
>
>
>
> not Happy Holiday !*
>
>
>
> Please, all Christians join together and
>
>
>
> wish everyone you meet during the
>
>
>
> holidays a
>
>
>
> MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Thanks for sharing that. I know they say that like 80% (or more) celebrate Christmas so why does the minority make all the decisions? I am thankful to live in a city where the kids still do sing Christmas songs in school. They just also sing a Hanakkuh and Kwanzaa song too.

What a great poem. What I love most about Christmas is driving around with the boys to find houses with the most christmas lights. They love that! Time with my boys is all that matters.

I will always be one who will wish people a Merry Christmas! Thanks for the great poem. So In-N-Out is a hamburger fast food chain that is only in California, Arizona, Nevada not sure about other states - but anyway they are finally making their way to Utah. It is super awesome food - always fresh hamburger and they cut their potatoes for french fries as you are watching. The only things on the menu are hamburgers/cheeseburgers, fries and drinks and shakes - that's it. If you ever get out west I would definitely recommend them!
