Christmas Is Too Big For Christ

CHRISTMAS  IS TOO BIG FOR CHRIST

Christmas is a time for love,
Despite the hectic push and shove,
We’re reminded that we all are one,
That peace and joy do have a place,
In uniting the human race,
There is something we are all part of,

This spirit Mister Dickens felt,
That makes the hardest Scrooge heart melt,
We can’t risk losing it, no not a smidgeon,
For unity is our motif,
Regardless of our own belief,
That’s too vital to screw up with religion,

The idea sounds quite radical,
He at least needs a sabbatical,
Been more than two millenia,
With all this Jesus business,
The world’s changed more than he could fathom,
We’ve moved on to Lennon’s Imagine,
So though it will offend some, yeah,
Let’s take Christ out of Christmas,

So let’s stick with snow and sleighbells,
Grand hellos and then faretheewells,
Auld Lang Syne, Good will to all you know,
Be it Kwanza, Christmas, Hannukah,
I’ve something here for all of ya,
Come on over ‘neath the mistletoe,

The idea sounds quite radical,
He at least needs a sabbatical,
Been more than two millenia,
With all this Jesus business,
The world’s changed more than he could fathom,
We’ve moved on to Lennon’s Imagine,
So though it will offend some, yeah,
Let’s take Christ out of Christmas!
