Holiday Gift Guide is NOW My Christmas Gift Guide!

I received this from a friend today, and in honor of Christ, I am changing my Holiday Gift Guide, to my Christmas Gift Guide. I like Christmas. I always say "Merry Christmas" to others. I would never, could never say Happy Holidays. Who says that anyways? So read below, and let me know if you too agree, it's CHRISTMAS we fight for, as this "hurting other people's feelings" junk has got to go. What happened exactly to the TRUE meaning of Christmas?




 Twas two months before Christmas
When all through our land,

 
Not a Christian was praying
 
Nor taking a stand.
 
Why 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-is-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
  MERRCHRISTMAS!
