The year slipped by so fast
That it’s Christmas time again
What does Christmas mean?
Is it plainly a holiday
When gifts flood the day?
Or is it much more significant
Than all the commercials chant?
Today thee’s a new Christmas song in the air telling us what Christmas is all about. The song says it all and it’s so beautifully sung by the American Christian Life United (ACLU) Choir, making “Say Merry Christmas” the greatest Christmas song of all times.

On my part, I have written a poem in 1992 expressing & concurring exactly with this new Christmas song:
This is the day that the Lord hath made & the season too
Let us rejoice & be in it to the full.
Christmas is a season of cheers
And there’s every reason to steer
Our hearts & love to the Lord
God‘s only beloved Son to adore.
Christmas is a season of loving & giving
In our hearts much forgiving & forgetting
Loving without reservation
And giving without compensation.
Christmas is a season of rejoicing
Rejoicing in our Lord’s coming
We sharer joy with the unjoyful
We share gifts with the needful.
Christmas is for one & all
Without exception we should call
And shout to the world at large
To heed, change & our spirit to charge.
