Ok, I fell for this Facebook Poll. I voted NO. And I made this vote before knowing if President Obama actually made this utterance. Sad thing for our nation is that true or not, many, including myself, believe it would have been in character for our president to disrespect our nation and his own proclaimed religion. By the way, I was with over 92% of the quarter million poll takers who said NO to renaming the Christmas Tree.
And the facts are that I couldn’t find any facts that back up President Obama renaming the National Christmas Tree. The only real fact I found was that the National Park Service is still planning a National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on December 3rd. I assume that at a National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony there will be a National Christmas (not Holiday) Tree to be lit.
If anyone has any more information on this, leave a note.
Now I’m off to investigate a rumor about President Obama renaming that National Jewish Candle Thingy.
My first Christmas prayer for this holy day is to thank God for giving his Son to the world, so that we may choose everlasting life. My second Christmas prayer is that we would all make this choice. And lastly, I pray that everyone will have a merry little Christmas.
and as an elderly gentleman pointed out to me last evening,
Happy Holy Days to all!
Joy to the World

Wally, Mrs. Wally and our 2 little wallys will be there on Christmas Eve. We’d love to see you there for an hour of Christmas music and worship. I also hear there will be puppets and a few treats.

And you who are busy with the busyness of today, remember this small lesson from the Whos, who knew the Way.
‘Pooh-pooh to the Whos!’ he was grinch-ish-ly humming.
‘They’re finding out now that no Christmas is coming.’
‘They’re just waking up, I know just what they’ll do. Their mouths will hang open a minute or two,
then the Whos down on Who-ville will all cry boo-hoo.’
But every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small, was singing! Without any presents at all.
He hadn’t stopped Christmas from coming! It came! Somehow or other, it came just the same.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before.
‘Maybe Christmas,’ he thought, ‘doesn’t come from a store.’
‘Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.
I pray that we would all remember that Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.
May God bless you and your family and may you have a very Merry Christmas!
