It’s Christmas Time

Christmas is commercialized…
“Joy to the world” unrealized.
We have become so merry minded
That we have lost the joy behind it.
It’s “ho! ho! ho! and Santa Claus
And Happy Holidays  because
A Merry Christmas may offend!
Well, this is where this chick won’t bend!

I do refuse to take Christ out!
Isn’t He what CHRISTmas is about?!
 Well, I don’t have to speculate!
I know whose birth I celebrate!

I’m not against the Christmas tree
But let’s call it what it’s meant to be!
I’m just not Holiday inclined…
It’s NOT how this tree’s been defined!

Christmas Vacations were mistakes?
Our children now take Winter Breaks?
Well, I need a break from all this crap!
 Because this chick will not adapt!

I will begin this Christmas season
Focused on the one true reason
That’s ever made the church bells chime!
 The Christ is born…it’s CHRISTmas time!

(whom I'm sure feels just like me)

~~Merry CHRISTmas To All~~

~~Author's Note~~
I hope I don't sound too defiant but I am
truly weary of having to defend my right
to keep Christ in Christmas. Holiday trees
and winter vacations are all well and good
at any other time of the year...but this is
CHRISTmas time...we put up Christmas
trees and take Christmas vacations!

Luke 2: 9-11
An angel of the Lord appeared to them,
 and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
 and they were terrified.  But the angel
 said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you

 good news of great joy that will be for
 all the people.  Today in the town of David
a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
