    Twas the month before Christmas*



    *When all through our land,*



    *Not a Christian was praying*



    *Nor taking a stand.*



    *See 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-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 '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 during the



    Holidays


    a



    MERRY CHRISTMAS



    Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!

    Dick's Sporting Goods thought they'd do the "happy holiday" thing too....they changed their mind real quick when they got their cash registers threatened to remain bare!
    Merry Christmas !!

    Currently, there are eleven U.S. Federal holidays, most (but not all) of which are also state holidays.

    In the United States, a federal holiday is a public holiday recognized by the United States government.

    Christmas day....A Christian holiday that celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. Popular aspects of the holiday include decorations, emphasis on family togetherness, and gift giving. Designated a federal holiday by Congress and President Ulysses S. Grant in 1870.

    Christmas - Hanukkah Merger


    Continuing the current trend of large-scale mergers and acquisitions, it was announced today at a press conference that Christmas and Hanukkah will merge.
    An industry source said that the deal had been in the works about 1300 years.
    While details were not available at press time, it is believed that the overhead cost of having twelve days of Christmas and eight days of Hanukkah was becoming prohibitive for both sides. By combining forces, we're told, the world will be able to enjoy consistently high-quality service during the Fifteen Days of Chrismukah, as the new holiday is being called.
    Massive layoffs are expected, with lords a-leaping and maids a-milking being the hardest hit. As part of the conditions of the agreement, the letters on the dreydl, currently in Hebrew, will be replaced by Latin, thus becoming unintelligible to a wider audience. Also, instead of translating to "A great miracle happened there," the message on the dreydl will be the more generic "Miraculous stuff happens."
    In exchange, it is believed that Jews will be allowed to use Santa Claus and his vast merchandising resources for buying and delivering their gifts.One of the sticking points holding up the agreement for at least three hundred years was the question of whether Jewish children could leave milk and cookies for Santa even after having eaten meat for dinner. A break through came last year, when Oreos were finally declared to be Kosher. All sides appeared happy about this.
    Fortunately for all concerned Kwanzaa will help to maintain the competitive balance. The conference was closed as the speaker led all present in a rousing rendition of "Oy Vey, All Ye Faithful
