Merry Christmas NOT Happy Holidays!

I was sent this email as a forward from my sister n law and I felt the need to share this with y’all.  Because it is true.  And I also want to mention that although I keep politics to myself, I did vote for Obama but I do not agree and I am truly upset that he isn’t going to have a Christmas tree in the White House this year, but a holiday tree.  There is simply no such thing as a holiday tree! You may have noticed the buttons on my sidebar…These will be listed on my sidebar for y’all to snag and add to your own.  Because I am a Child of Christ and I will say Merry Christmas!
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 !*
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!

I hadn't heard that Obama wasn't going to have a Christmas tree but rather a holiday tree. How sad what the world has come to. And I didn't vote for him or believe anything that he stands for. Your post gives us alot to think about.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

That is ridiculus that Obama isn't putting a CHRISTMAS tree up in the white house! I didn't know that until just now after reading this!
I hate it how they take the Christ out of CHRISTMAS ! Alot of stores around here have started putting CHRISTMAS not Holidays! I was very happy!
I am a child of Christ! and it isn't just a holiday! it's a day for Christ!
I loved your post!
Thanks!

i noticed too (as another commenter added) that a few stores have MERRY CHRISTMAS again :)! YEAH! i didn't vote for obama... and find it RIDICULOUS that it's a holiday tree. lame. i'd rather him not have one at all if they're going to have to be all PC about it.
thanks for the reminder of what it's REALLY about!! :)

You couldn't of paid me to vote for Obama. And I will vote for a barnyard chicken the next round if it is up against him. I wouldn't have expected him to put up a tree in the first place. I'm stopping right here because I could write a NOVEL about my feelings about what he is trying to do in this country.

I've felt pretty strongly for a while now that if you celebrate Christmas it should be Merry Christmas. That shouldn't offend anyone.

The Holiday Tree idea ... it's offensive. That's so dumb. Without the meaning for the holidays what exactly are we celebrating?
