Twas the month 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-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
MERRY CHRISTMAS
Christ is The Reason' for the Christ-mas Season!

Got this from a friend of mine in an e-mail some time ago. Rings pretty true, huh?

Christ shouldn't be the reason for the Xmas season - Jesus wasn't even born in December - a fact which most Christians refuse to even acknowledge, especially around Xmastime.

That's when we celebrate his birth. If we moved Christmas to July people would still find a reason to bitch about it. :cool:
I wouldn't. Celebrate his birth when he was actually born, not because its more convenient.

Care to provide a historically accurate, undisputed, birth date? I bet you can't.

The pagans can go on celebrating whatever they're going on about during Christmas too if they want. I don't see any reason to be negative at all :dunno:

Even Christian theologians cannot agree on the month or the year of Christ's birth. However, in the face of such uncertainty the choices are to either (1) not celebrate His birth at all at all, or (2) pick a date and go with it. I think the latter makes more sense.

Doesn't matter.

What does matter is the history.

You folks are celebrating a Roman Holiday.

THAT's why it's convenient.

It was to make Christianity more palatable to the Romans.

We celebrate his birth BECAUSE he was born, the EXACT date is really irrelevant.

Surely even you can understand that.

The problem is, you would.

Since there are no physical records of when Jesus was born, any day will do. The purpose of Christmas is to celebrate his birth, regardless of the day he was born.

I have no understanding why people have this problem with December 25. Please spare Me the "Church stole the pagan holiday" meme.....The pagans can still worship their day, right along with the Jews and the Blacks who also celebrate a religious holiday this time of year.
