The Reason for the Season

O.K. all...I am going to get on my soap box and hope that I don't offend anyone. But I think that I and many others like me have been quiet for too long. I am a Christian...and proud of it...and I am so tired of being Politically Correct! Now don't get me wrong...I believe that everyone is welcome to their belief's...if you are athiest and don't believe in God...that is your choice...if you are Jewish and celebrate Hanukka I will wish you a Happy Hanukka back...or if you celebrate Ramada or Kwanzaa...and wish me a Happy Ramada or Happy Kwanzaa I will return the greating! I am not offended by the greeting, in fact I am happy to be included in your celebrations.  But I am Christian and I celebrate Christmas...and in the same respect that I will not try to stop you from celebrating your religious belief's I would appreciate not being told that I cannot celebrate mine! Jesus is the reason for this holiday...it is not a "winter holiday" it is a Christmas holiday and  I will always refer to this as the Christmas season...I will always wish you a Merry Christmas and if you have a problem with this then maybe you had better think about it the next time you go to celebrate one of your religious celebrations...what if you are told that it is no longer acceptable to celebrate them! We are told that we live in a free society...that we are all able to have our own religious beliefs or none at all if that is your choice...so why is it that the Christians are now being told that they are no longer able to have our religious celebrations? If we went to your countries how would you like it if we told you that you were no longer allowed to have your religion. There is so much more that I would like to say...but should probably stop before my soap box turns over.  I was sent this email today and I just had to post it. Now I will get down off my soap box and again hope that I have not offended anyone...but I am tired of being offended by others.

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-is-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!
