I am working on the Lawless America post… I’m a little uneasy about it, and feel that once again this blog is teaching by example, “we are our own worst enemies”… but I’m like that curious cat that ignores the death awaiting it… unafraid of consequences… eye on the goal… understanding.
One month till the end of the year, and I just really feel I need to do some wrapping up here, and we got off to a great start, but with each post, new stuff arises… you know how that goes…
And although this will be a month of heavy posts, I’d like to have some ongoing lighthearted ones to keep with the festive holiday season! So I thought: CHRISTMAS SONGS!
And sorry, but due to how busy this blog will be this month, just trying to tie up this year of posts, I do not have time to get into any arguments on Christmas. I celebrate Christmas and am fine with those who don’t. Let’s just leave it there for now. I know people get all crazy on the subject of public display of Christmas, and I’d love to blog about all of that madness but, I’m not getting into all that, there’s just no time… maybe next Christmas we will be in a better place to discus such things… but not now… just accept that in Zero’s World there is Christmas music and know that it’s O.K.
I also get some people just hate Christmas music… I drive everyone around me nuts playing it all month-long (Christmas movies too, but that’s another blog). So fine, just skip these 25 daily posts (but play this first one before you go).
For the rest of us, each day will be like cutting a link off that red and green chain each morning, counting down with a new song to play for each chain link… or like getting music instead of chocolate each time you open one of those doors on your Advent Calender!
Oh, and here’s the lyrics so you can sing along:
“Xmas Has Been X’ed”
It’s funny how some fables became historic
When the authors clearly wrote them to be metaphoric
But people will believe anything if it’s written
Especially in stone or ancient scroll
December 25th has been blacklisted
Since Dawkins found the proof Jesus never existed
It was the last thing anyone ever expected
Xmas has been X’d, No colored lights, no shopping sprees
No more presents under dead trees
St. Nick is dead but we don’t grieve
We celebrate the last Christmas EveJesuits are slowly turning Dianetic
Protestants increasingly become agnostic
Pentecostal churches are hanging pentagrams
Priests and Nuns are molesting each other
Methodists and Baptists are claiming Buddhist
Evangelicals surprisingly are Nudist
But mostly everyone is trying to become Jew
Cuz Easter’s canceled tooNo more egg hunts, no Sunday mass
Fridays are fair, Wednesdays don’t ash
They canceled lent and slowed down fast
Enjoy Christmas cuz it’s your last
No shopping sprees (don’t worry son)
No more presents (We don’t need christ) under dead trees (We got eight nights)
St. Nick is dead (we got mitzvah) but we don’t grieve (They’re all canceled)
We celebrate (our Hanukkah) the last Christmas eve
