  • Police Stop Pro-Lifers From Singing Christmas Carols on Public Sidewalk Outside Abortion Clinic

    The First Amendment protests the free speech rights of Americans — but apparently not those of pro-life advocates singing Christmas carols on a public sidewalk outside a local abortion business in Falls Church, Virginia. Alliance Defending Freedom sent a letter Monday to the Falls Church Police Department after two officers told several Christmas carolers to stop singing on a public sidewalk outside of an abortion business. One of the carolers captured the officers on video informing the carolers that singing is prohibited under a noise ordinance and that they must cease singing. The letter explains that police cannot use the...

  • 'Green' Christmas Carols Replace Christ with Climate Change

    Silent Night! Endless night! All is dark, there’s no light. Cyclone clouds have blocked out the sky, We’re almost out of our dry-meat supply. Sleep in uneasy peace. We may have to eat Aunt Bernice. What the New Yorker is calling "Climate Change Carols" are a series of Christmas songs whose lyrics have been rewritten to focus on environmental issues, gutting the carols of any relationship to the season of Christ’s birth. Not only that, but the hope and joy characteristic of Christmas has also given way to gloom and doom. Granted, this dechristianization of carols began years ago with...
  • ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’ Is The Worst Christmas Song Ever

    The worst Christmas song ever isn’t actually a Christmas song. It’s just a song that uses Christmas in the hook and was popular when it was released. So Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas” gets played every year starting at the end of November. Every year, I think that the awfulness comes in part from the refreshed shock of dreadful lyrics I’ve not heard in 11 months. Instead, my loathing of the song grows through the season and year by year. So as it starts playing on repeat—and the 30th anniversary edition regales us with two versions this season—a...
  • Long Island School Removes Words From Silent Night – Too Offensive (Video)

    For their Christmas Holiday concert Kings Park school in Long Island cut several religious references from their music. It was too offensive. It’s an Obama world. “Silent Night” is now too offensive to sing at school. CBS Local reported: The song “Silent Night” is at the heart of a concert controversy on Long Island. Kings Park school officials removed several religious references, including “Holy infant” and “Christ the Savior,” from the popular Christmas carol before a student concert last week, WCBS 880′s Mike Xirinachs reported. The intent was to avoid offending non-Christians, but the change left others upset. “I’m not...

    What’s your favorite Christmas song? That’s a very subjective question. Some like to hear about “chestnuts roasting on an open fire” – others love to think about bells “jingling.” Yet, others tear up (with good reason) thinking about a “Holy Night” so long ago. They may even want to fall on their knees. Christmas is more than a day in December – it is a season. Reminders of this are all around us – from the weather, to gatherings, to the music on the radio. It is not unusual for savvy media outlets to saturate their formats with all things...
  • What are the indispensable Christmas carols?

    Two years ago, I posed the opposite question to Hot Air readers in a burst of Christmas Eve misanthropy, so consider this a long-overdue penance. What Christmas carols simply must be heard in order to make a joyous season more complete? Which specific versions do you like best? For instance, one might love “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby, while detesting the disco version of it (a big thanks to Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson of the Hugh Hewitt show for dropping that into a break bed last night). As I mentioned in the post two years ago, you can love “Santa Baby”...

    The self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" in America, Phoenix's Joe Arpaio, who cranked up his Christmas music machine for inmates last month, has scheduled a caroling contest for interested pre-trial prisoners - with the winner to receive a "real Christmas dinner for himself and his cell mates." In a move Sheriff Arpaio said "is likely to make Ebenezer Scrooge smile," the eligible inmates are those being held at the Maricopa County jails on charges ranging from burglary and driving under the influence to murder. Besides Santa Claus and the sheriff, the judges will include Elfis the singing detention officer, who also will...

    Garrison Keillor has always struck me as mean-spirited, wrapping a fundamentally smug and condescending world view in a fondant of cutesy-poo irony. Now, thanks to Glenn Reynolds‘ posting of Marissa Brostoff’s TABLET MAGAZINE column, “Garrison Keillor Doesn’t Like Jews Writing Christmas Songs,” others may also reassess their opinion of NPR’s favorite son. Brostoff describes Keillor’s recent Baltimore Sun column, in which he complains about “all those lousy holiday songs by Jewish guys that trash up the malls every year, Rudolph and the chestnuts and the rest of that dreck. Did one of our guys write ‘Grab your loafers, coma along...

    Enduring favourites such as Hark the Herald Angels Sing and God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen are being altered by clergy to make them more "modern and inclusive". But churchgoers say there is no need to change the popular carols and complain that the result is a "festive car crash" if not everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet. It comes just a day after a Church of England vicar banned his congregation from singing O Little Town of Bethlehem because he believed its words do not reflect the suffering endured by modern residents of Jesus's birthplace. Another clergyman has...
  • School choir forced to pull out of Christmas concert as carols were 'too religious'

    A school choir was forced to withdraw from a Christmas event because organisers branded its carols 'too religious'. Around 60 children aged between seven and 11 had spent six weeks practising favourites including Once In Royal David's City and Silent Night for the Corringham Winter Festival. But they were let down at the last minute when their headteacher was informed their programme did not 'dovetail' with the festival's theme.

    The York Dispatch ^ | 12/21/07 | Daina Klimanis
    In Christmases past, residents of Kingston House in West York hung a tree with Santa Clauses and decorated a common room with puzzles showing Christ in a manger. School groups and carolers came through the halls singing "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and other popular Christian hymns. But things are different this December. At Kingston House and other properties owned by the York Area Development Corporation, songs or decorations in common areas must be secular. The same policy applies to hundreds of tenants in York City's Delphia House and other apartments managed by the development...

    This is in regard to the rules for some people who live in housing units for the elderly. They tell them that outside their own living quarters there may be no mangers, no angels and if there is a tree, it is to be called the Holiday Tree. However, the rules for decorating it are popcorn, cranberries, icicles, snowflakes, etc. That isn't too bad but, Holiday Tree? Now get this; for carollers, they may sing "Frosty the Snowman," "Winter Wonderland" but they may not sing "Hark the Herald Angels Sing: or "O Holy Night" or "Away in the Manger." Why...
