I was going to save this for Christmas week, but I think it may be more appropriate now. Speak-up don’t be intimidated by political correctness.
Merry Christmas to all!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS I SAY
Where have gone, those days of yore
when Christmas brought jubilation?
Where have gone, those of the faith
who rejoiced in its celebration?
And when did “Merry Christmas”
become offensive in this nation?
And who, now dare to say those words
and thus be faced with denigration?
Well, I for one will stand and say
to but one, or congregation,
I wish to all a “Merry Christmas”
and do so with elation!
For I will not be silenced by
convention nor intimidation.
And as Jesus was born on Christmas Day
I will proudly share His inspiration!
