Merry Christmas to all who would return the wish

From the Second Chapter of Luke:

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

As to those who would not, may God take mercy your soul.

A light will shine on us this day: the Lord is born for us.

    Even if you don’t do Christmas then have a good and merry night anyway. There can’t be too many of those in a life. May your joys be many and your sorrows few. May those sorrows you have be lessened through sharing and may your joys be magnified by the same. May your family surround you and your friends be around you.

    Light the candle light the lights –
    Blessings be to all this night.
    Share the laughter, share the love-
    Something there is never enough of –
    All be Merry happy and bright –
    Wish you a Merry Christmas and to all a good night.

    Blessings to all – and sleep tight.

    A very merry Christmas to all. Here’s a funny cut and paste I once created each year for comedy value. Even though I’m a Jew, giving praise back to God for all his blessings means a great deal to me. I have much to be grateful for!

    • Merry Christmas to you and yours, “paul hooson.”

        Thank you. It’s lonely around the house with my girlfriend out visiting, so I appreciate the company and well wishes!

    Awake, oh all, this joyous morn –
    for unto us a child is born.
    Hark! The heralds blow their horn –
    on this joyous Christmas morn.
    Soon the sun will rise with dawn –
    a sight a jewel to look upon –
    one of many precious things –
    That rise to salute the newborn King.
    Rise! Awake! Love and LIVE –
    gifts to loved ones for to give –
    for a gift we have been given –
    as the precious SON has risen.
    Merry Christmas to all and good morn –
    for a child has been born –
    bless all around with you –
    and may love it abound with you.
    Merry Christmas to all on this morn.

    In the spirit of Christmas I offer one of the great Xmas movies of all time. What family doesn’t argue a little over the holidays?

  • Merry Christmas to you and yours Rodney… and to all Wizbangers…
