'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 are 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 'DreamTree'
Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say
Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday !


I believe in Christmas not happy holiday

Right-wing paranoid nonsense
from Bill O'Reilly and his followers.

Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year
and Happy Holidays to all.

I totally disagree with asnet about the right wing paranoid nonsense.

Merry Christmas, lisa!

I totally agree with asnet; just because somebody says something other than "Merry Christmas" doesn't mean they're an atheist heathen depraved liberal; maybe they switch off greetings, and you came right after a "Merry Christmas".

Of course, I'm an atheist heathen depraved liberal, so maybe I'm feeding you propaganda...

Merry Christmas Lisa and thank you for the poem. I don't believe it has to be all for or against religion. I believe in Christ and I celebrate Christmas. Others don't and that is there right. On the other hand I don't see why 9% of the people that don't worship a God should be able to silence the 91% that does. Kudo to you.

I love the whole series of poem blogs people have been posting about Christmas.

I'm sure there are some intolerant people who use Christmas as a platform for their own anti-religious bigotry, but I also think they are a minority within the non-Christian crowd. True diversity and religious freedom means that anyone should be equally able to express and celebrate their personal faith freely as long as it does not impinge on another person's right to do the same. It does not mean that people should have to equally suppress that same expression for fear of offending others. As for the bitchy whiny people who are easily offended by other people's faiths, they should just do us all a favor and jump off a bridge; nobody has a damn use for a scrooge and a curmudgeon.

Merry Christmas to all for whom Christmas has special significance. Greetings and best wishes to all who celebrate some other significant religious day within this period. Happy holidays for all the rest who need a break from school and work.
