Christmas is not a date.  It is a state of mind.”
–Mary Ellen Chase

“At Christmas
A man is at his finest towards the finish of the year;
He is almost what he should be when the Christmas season’s here;
Then he’s thinking more of others than he’s thought the months before,
And the laughter of his children is a joy worth toiling for.
He is less a selfish creature than at any other time;
When the Christmas spirit rules him he come close to the sublime.”
        –Edgar Guest

I really hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  As I mentioned to those who receive the “Coffee Perc”, Thanksgiving is important for a couple of reasons.  The first is, of course, that we should always be showing gratitude for our blessings.  I’m so tired of the whiny-babies out there.  America is evil, we are oppressed, on and on they whine.  My goodness gracious, be thankful for what you have.  Try living in some other country and see the problems that they have.  Or, get out there and do something POSITIVE!  Quite whining and belly-aching, if you really think this is bad do something positive; don’t go around breaking other’s property, holding up traffic of honest-working people.  In other words get in touch with Reality rather than your stupid, dumbfounded ideology.
The second thing is that Thanksgiving is the start of the holiday season, or if you wish, the Christmas season.  There is always an uproar of the saying of “Merry Christmas.”  Don’t get caught up in the political correctness of the idiots out there.  All they are trying to do is ruin your Christmas and get you agitated.  They do have a certain arrogance, but if someone corrects you and says, “Happy Holidays,” smile, reply “Merry Christmas.”  They are simply showing their ignorance, and yes, they are being antichrist.  However, even though they certainly don’t know it, but they have just wished you a “Happy Holy Day.”  Now everyday should be holy, but especially that day when Christ was born–what we call Christmas.  It is a holy day because God took a moment, just the right moment in time, and sent to the earth a blessing that cannot be contained.  (Why do you think the fools fight so hard?)
Now I definitely prefer “Merry Christmas” and that is what I always reply.  In fact, say a silent prayer for them, for they are in that realm of being a fool and that is a dangerous position.  Remember, that “Ignorance can be fixed, but stupidity if fatal.”  This folk prefer to live in darkness because they are blinded by their ideas, their sham, their foolishness, and their arrogance.  In fact, look around, especially at the liberal agenda and those pushing it, whether it be the media, the entertainment industry, or the liberal politicians.  When they open their mouths they just seem to spout out their ignorance.
Start to enjoy the season.  Jesus came that we might have life, so don’t let a dead-man (that’s what they are, call them “living zombies”) ruin the season for you.  If you do, then it’s your own fault.  Have life, enjoy life, enjoy the Reason for the season.  Hmmmm, that might be a good response if someone shoves their arrogance at you (remember Scrooge and Bob Cratchit) say “Merry Christmas, and I’ll say a prayer for you.”  Not very politically correct, but certainly Biblically correct.

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
–John 10:10 (NKJV)
