Dear Friends and Patriots,

Merry Christmas to All and a Blessed New Year to You and Yours! Enjoy!

Merry Christmas in America

The clean crisp smell of Evergreen boughs in the air
Sprigs of holly, green leaves and red berries, everywhere
Pieces of mistletoe tied up with a bow over the door
Everyone so jolly as they tramp from store to store

A time to share gifts and love, a wonderful celebration
A time to be grateful for freedom and our bountiful Nation
And to remember, foremost this day, God’s gift to all men
His only begotten son, sent here, to pay for our sin,

How merciful is He, to sacrifice, His only son’s life
That we on earth may be granted blessed eternal afterlife
Long ago near the end of December, on a cold winters night
Our Lord was born under watchful eyes and a guiding light

Just as mother Mary, father Joseph, the shepherds and wise men,
Watched over the precious child, born that day to carry our sin
There are those, our nations defenders, under starlit wintry skies
On a cold vigil, ever watchful through the darkness, our fears to belie

No glow of soft candlelight as they watch with sharp eye
Or crackling fire with crimson sparks wafting to the sky
Courageous men and women all standing their ground
Stalwart for centuries, uncomplaining, uttering nary a sound

Guarding our freedom, over the seas and in lands far away
Standing silent vigil, some here at home, do also stay
Honor, Dignity, Courage and unselfish Sacrifice
Are just a few of the things we learned from Jesus Christ.

Christ the Savior was born in Bethlehem and for good reason
We celebrate with love and joy this very special season
We follow His teachings that we may be better men
And are thankful for His sacrifice and forgiveness of our sin

Our Country, was founded, by men of Godly faith and foresight
A land of religious freedom where all men may pray by right
Where they can practice their peaceful religions without any fear
A land where Godliness, honor, character and courage are revered

A wondrous place where all of good intent have always been welcome
Where Christmas isn’t just for Christians; it is Christ’s birthday and then some
It is about what He stood for, His always open arms; His lessons of love for all
About Peace on Earth and Goodwill toward all men, be they great or small

It is a holy day for Christians just as other religions celebrate theirs openly
The Jews with Yom Kippur and Hanukah, Sikh and Hindu celebrate Diwali
The Moslems with Ramadan and Eid-al-Adha, all, celebration days to remember
Then Christmas comes just before New Year, spreading peace and joy, in late December

Some choose to make wishes of “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays”
Instead of wishing a very “Merry Christmas” for this most special of days
They are afraid of offending just who, I am afraid I know not
But their political correctness costs them, in stature, quite a lot

God gave a gift to Washington and our great Republic, the U.S. of A.
It was the Revolutionary war’s turning point, at Trenton, on Christmas Day
So happily light your candles, exchange gifts and drink your eggnog
Decorate your Christmas trees, roast a turkey and burn a Yuletide log

But remember, with a quickness of step and a twinkle in your eye
To always be grateful, to live in a free nation, where we understand why
Spreading the gifts of love, peace and joy in exchange for our sins is the reason
God chose to bless the world with, his beloved son, this most holy season.

Have A Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
