Going out on a lim with this one. I don’t mean to offend or upset anyone. However, these are thoughts and feelings I’ve been having for many years. Yes, I am a Christian, and I do believe joy in this “holiday season” is okay to have, but cliche as it sounds, our culture is using this season as another opportunity to bury Christ.
roughly every 280 days (since Christmas really starts at Halloween now)
which is really less than a year,
we all gather in happy harmony
to slaughter each other
on violent shopping sprees
(how many of those gifts came from child labor, sir?)
and leave dark skid lines
across highway lanes
to celebrate “________________”
The white house
decided to stop calling Christmas trees
and now they are “HOLIDAY TREES!!!!”
to celebrate “_________________”
the “Christmas tree”
originated as a way to
glorify none other than
German pagan gods.
celebrates what, exactly?
cookies ( gingerbread houses, gingerbread men, sugar cookies, Santa-shaped cookies)
left for Santa and his reindeer
gifts (selfishness, materialism)
and MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS CHEER!!!
FOR ALL TO HEAR!!
It is all to celebrate “________________”.
You and I, and everyone we know
gets so worked up and stressed this time of year.
to celebrate “___________________”
“Daddy, can you tell me what Christmas is really about?”
