Freue dich, freue dich, O Christenheit!
Christkindchen komm in unser Haus,
Leer deine schönen Sachen aus,
Stell dein Eselchen auf den Mist,
Daß es Heu und Hafer frißt.

Rejoice, rejoice, O Christendom!
The Christ-Child to our house has come.
Bring now forth thy treasures fine,
Lift thine ass-colts from the mire
That they on hay and oats may dine.

The kiddies in the family are getting money this year. That'll make 'em happy, I'm sure.
Winter is here. It got down to 61 degrees last night on Maui. BBRRRRRRRRRRR
I missed that. As soon as I saw your #15 post, I went to Google.
But I should have known a FReeper would be quick on the draw with a link.
I'm taking a double-bladed battleaxe with me, though, on the remote chance I don't get a pony this year... ;-)
Merry Christmas all!

Thank you Jim R for this forum, and may you and your family enjoy many more years of FReeping.
The creator of Kwanzaa, the convicted felon and now Marxist professor Ron Karenga, hardly subscribed to "Christian priciples" when he was convicted of his crimes and sent to prison nor does he subscribe to any "Christian principles" in his Marxist indoctrination at a California university.
Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by Dr. Ron "Maulana" Karenga.
In 1971 Ron (sic Maulana) Karenga, Louis Smith, and Luz Maria Tamayo were convicted of felony assault and false imprisonment for assaulting and torturing two women from the United Slaves, Deborah Jones & Gail Davis. A May 14, 1971 article in the Los Angeles Times described the testimony of one of the women: "Deborah Jones, who once was given the Swahili title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Ms. Davis's mouth and placed against Ms. Davis's face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vise. Karenga, head of US, also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths, she said." They also were hit on the heads with toasters.
At Karenga's trial, the question arose as to Karenga's sanity. It is theorized that Karenga may have had a mental breakdown due to the stress of dealing with the violence and murders surrounding his United Slaves (US) organization and the Black Panther Party (BPP). His behavior became bizarre. And, at his trial, a psychiatrist's report stated the following: "This man now represents a picture that can be considered both paranoid and schizophrenic with hallucinations and illusions, inappropriate affect, disorganization, and impaired contact with the environment."
A very Merry and blessed CHRISTmas to you all!
May God bless and keep our brave men and women in harms way close to Him. May His hand of protection be over them, and His arms of comfort and strength encompass them and also their families.
Thank you, Father, for the Gift I surely don't deserve, but that I treasure more than anything--Your Son, Christ Jesus.
"For to us a Son is born, For to us a Son is given... and His name shall be called The Wonderful Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
Merry Christmas fellow Freepers.
Me too. I always sleep better this time of year with the cool nights. Have a great day today.
Look at you! You're already a pro!
God Bless you all.
"Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel,
because he has come and has redeemed his people.
He has raised up a horn of salvation for us
in the house of his servant David
as he said through his holy prophets of long ago),
salvation from our enemies
and from the hand of all who hate us
to show mercy to our fathers
and to remember his holy covenant,
the oath he swore to our father Abraham:
to rescue us from the hand of our enemies,
and to enable us to serve him without fear
in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.
And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High;
for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him,
to give his people the knowledge of salvation
through the forgiveness of their sins,
because of the tender mercy of our God,
by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven
to shine on those living in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the path of peace." [Luke 1:68-79]
MERRY CHRISTMAS, Everybody...
The moderators, too...? :-)
USA Network is running the WWE Tribute to the Troops - Christmas in Baghdad tonight.
Great to see the Troops having some enjoyment.
Yes, I had it on for awhile this morning. I love how they just keep a picture of a fireplace on the TV screen while playing the music.
They did it last year, too.
Ashame that there was no visit by the President to the troops in Iraq or Afghanistan...
Merry Christmas to all who frequent here. Merry Christmas as well to Jim. John, the mods and others that make this a great meeting place.
You're already a pro! GOOD on you.
Merry Christmas, B!
Thanks to everyone who posted. I'll add all the greetings in Polish, Irish, and Japanese next year!
P.S. -- Remember: the feast of Christmas lasts 12 days (until Epiphany on 6 January), and Christmastide (the Christmas season) lasts until 2 February (Candlemas, aka Groundhog Day), so keep on celebrating!
(And don't forget to wish your Eastern/Orthodox friends a Merry Christmas on 7 January!)
Have a blessed St. Stephen's Day (26 December)!
Such a nice difference from the Merry Christmas from the Mod Squad...
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night...
And a happy New Year too...
