    Below is a poem I wrote that tells the true meaning of Christmas.


    Outside Bethlehem in dark of night,
    Shepherds keep sheep in their sight.
    Suddenly in their vision an Angel appears so bright.
    God's glory shines among them--they tremble in fright.
    The Angel spoke, "be not fearful,
    A Savior has just been born--oh news so joyful.
    In Bethlehem lies baby Jesus in a manger wrapped in swaddle clothing."
    A multitude of Angels appear--God they are glorifying and praising.
    To Bethlehem the Shepherds hastily go.
    To their joy, in a manger, Jesus lays in lanterns glow.
    Mary His mother, and Joseph her husband, proudly watching.
    The Shepherds--faces smiling with ecstasy--God they are praising.
    Into the surrounding area the Shepherds went.
    Telling the joyful news of Jesus Christ's birth--a Holy event.
    The people rejoice and praise God for news so wonderful.
    God's provision of hope--a gift of salvation made attainable.
    Jesus' birthday--we call Christmas Day.
    Like the Shepherds, we rejoice, thank the Lord and obey.
    Trusting in Jesus the Messiah for salvation,
    We receive the ultimate Christmas gift of eternal life and redemption.

    I'm well into that annual "dreaded" feeling. I hope some of you out there get some joy out of xmas....

    On a side note there was a few schools over here that changed 'xmas celebrations' to "holiday celbrations". (they probably had a lot of muslims in those schools or something). Anyway, they do all the carols n' such except they change the lyrics so that they dont reflect a christian teaching...Lol.
    πŸ™„ crazy stuff ,aye?
    Lets start changing Beatles lyrics next πŸ˜›

    Here's my Christmas poem, with an original illustration no less.

    In Austrian valleys
    all covered in snow
    they tell Christmas stories
    from ages ago
    of jolly St. Nick
    who flies to and fro
    with gifts for good children
    all sleeping below.

    But for the bad children,
    all trembling in bed,
    a visit from Krampus
    was something to dread.
    "Krampus will beat you,"
    their parents all said,
    "he takes naughty children
    right out to the shed."

    The naughtiest children
    were quaking with fear
    in case that ol' Krampus
    was soon to appear.
    They begged for forgiveness
    with hopes that he'd hear,
    while their parents all prayed
    they'd still buy it next year.

    Its all nice on the surface, but if you go behind the scenes of Xmas what do you find?

    So everyone can celebrate the birth of the wonderful man Jesus, hundreds of thousands of pigs have to loose their thighs so people can have their legs of ham, and millions of chickens and turkeys have to meet the axe man to feed these hungry Christians.

    Just over the four weeks of Xmas, their is enough negative karma incurred by all that slaughter, to guarantee re-birth in this world by all persons involved in that mayhem.

    Then to wash down all the food, millions of liters of wine and spirits are consumed destroying the livers and brain cells of all those drinkers, and adding more negative karma.

    Millions of dollars are spent using the credit card, putting families under unwanted pressure and causing financial suffering.

    Philosophically, the teaching that worship of Jesus will ensure eternal life is false, because every living being is already eternal, because eternality is the nature of the spirit soul, and you could not be mortal if you tried (the real you that is, the soul)

    This is a false teaching of the church, to have people surrender to the church, to get their eternal life, but they dont tell you to stop killing animals which will send your spiritual life backwards.

    The question is though, do you want to be eternal in this world of suffering, or be eternal in the spiritual world of bliss and happiness and love.

    All that animal slaughter will insure that you will not return to the spiritual world, but return to this material world again.

    I am not criticizing here, but as you know by now, I am just presenting the plain truth, for the benefit of those that care.

    To maximize your spiritual benefit, one must take to the process of religion described in Vedanta Sutra.

    will you be celebrating the festival with tofu and rice cakes, washed down with lashings of lemonade?

    Agreed for most part.
