To Celebrate “_____________”

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.

Every year,

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

towing

christmas trees

to celebrate “________________”

The white house

decided to stop calling Christmas trees

“Christmas trees”,

and now they are “HOLIDAY TREES!!!!”

to celebrate “_________________”

But actually,

factually,

the “Christmas tree”

originated as a way to

glorify none other than

German pagan gods.

So, “Christmas”

celebrates what, exactly?

Milk and

cookies ( gingerbread houses, gingerbread men, sugar cookies, Santa-shaped cookies)

left for Santa and his reindeer

who bring

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.

So much

to do,

but it

is all

vital

to celebrate “___________________”

“Daddy, can you tell me what Christmas is really about?”
