The Lyrics

I protest attempts to eradicate displays or celebrations in public. See http://www.the-north-pole.com/carols/look.html for Meredith Wilson's lyrics, recorded by Perry Como and Bing Crosby in the 50s.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Soon will barely show.
Take a look at the papers, then listen to broadcasts when
ACLU and atheists say "No!"

They'll be spinning it crooked, not like Christmas;
Poisoning the lore.
Let the piteous Right decree that it's folly they foresee
If we close that door.

Impair historical roots; the Epistles are hoots,
They are wishful fancies of men.
Prophetic talk we now proffer to mock;
Our new hope is fantastic Zen.
And parents glad can hardly wait for cool snow sports again.

If we no longer book a spot for Christmas,
All things fair will go.
No more Trees in strand public dwell, none in the park to tell
The sturdy mind that was too blind to know:

The beginning of Peace is not just Christmas,
But it spells a start.
It will spring you awake to sing this new carol and to bring
Bright gifts in your heart.
If you sing this in public and people drop money, keep it; but drop a note to bjmitchel@att.net .

Well done Barry. I too have a protest song out today on this subject. I agree with your sentiments 100% and may 5 Christmas trees grace your holiday and the Son shine down upon you.
