OPEN extended Weekends 2018 Season


 Link to keeping a live tree alive when indoors for the season



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-si-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!

And blessed Christmas to you and  yours.

Christmas would only be mas without Christ.
