Twas the Month Before Christmas (Author Unknown)

Twas the month before Christmas

When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying

Nor taking a stand.

Why the Politically Correct 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 another ‘ 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 Home Depot the word “Christmas” was nowhere to be found.

At WalMart 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 Pelosi, Now Sharpton and Reed,

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 ousted 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 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!

  1. Yep, I’ve about had it with having to be sensitive to the non-believers, and not receiving reciprocal sensitivity and respect. If it weren’t for JESUS, I wouldn’t bother with the holidays at all. For me, it’s all about HIM–lights, wreath, baking/giving. And I’m extra thankful that I have NO reason to go to the malls! God bless you and the fam BIG, Pastor J–love, sis Caddo

  2. It is sad for those who feel they have to be politically correct and can’t take a stand for our Lord and Savior. I always say Merry Christmas to people and I find there are many people receive it with open arms and respond with a Merry Christmas back, seldom did I receive a negative response. Let’s face it, people would not have a holiday if it wasn’t for us celebrating Christ’s birthday on December 25th and it is unfortunate the true meaning is lost to so many. Lord, I pray that Your people have the strength to take a stand for Your son, Jesus Christ. Many blessings to you, Pastor J.

  3. I used to work for the Post Office and we were told not to wish people Merry Christmas. ! I think all of us continued to though , and no one got in trouble. It usually was a matter of someone saying it to you first, and then you responded, in which case wouldn’t it be rude not to? 🙂 God bless you as you let the whole world know He was born!

  4. This, and other similar ones, seem to surface every Christmas – and that is good. We need to be reminded of the way the world is heading, and challenged to ensure that we mention CHRISTmas and the Christ of Christmas whenever and wherever we have the opportunity.

    We are one day closer!
