Let's End This War On Christmas


There's a war declared on Christmas
War on nativity
War on this festive season
And all things Christmassy. 

No Christmas songs at Walmart
No carolers at night
No wish of 'Merry Christmas'
Christmas is sanitized.

No Christmas in the classroom
No Christmas now at work
What in the world will happen next,
No Christmases at church?

We're ashamed to share His story
With our children and our peers
For fear of being old fashioned
In this twenty first century. 

Let's reclaim this Christmas season
With all it's hope and cheer
Let's end this war on Christmas
And keep it near and dear. 

Let's greet with 'Merry Christmas'
In the stores and in the street
In the workplace and the office
To everyone we meet!

'MERRY CHRISTMAS

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
