Here in the United States, it has become increasingly popular to homogenize the “Christmas Season” and it seems we have forgotten the true meaning of it. Over recent years we have allowed some, in our society, to dictate to the vast majority the do’s and don’t’s as to what is “politically correct” or not. Well, I Don’t Care what they say, because I say, “MERRY CHRISTMAS” to EVERYONE as it is my way of offering a wish of goodwill and peace to all during this, our most celebrated, time of year.
So, I will now take this time to wish all of you, the most blessed and merriest of Christmas’.
Keeping Christ In Christmas
From out of the east, the three kings
they had come,
following a star more bright
than the sun.
Seeking the Child who was born
on this day
in the small town of Bethlehem
so far away.
They brought with them gifts
befitting a king
and all the world was at peace
whilst the angels did sing.
In a manger of straw, wrapped in linen
there our Savior, was born
on a calm shining night.
And then the kings did bow down
in worship and praise,
before He who would suffer and die
for our ways.
You see, there’s more meaning to Christmas
than just presents and a tree
so, you’ll not hear “happy holiday”
but, “Merry Christmas” from me.
