21st Century Night Before Christmas

Published on 12/25/2014

'T'was the night before Christmas and all through the town 
Not a sign of Baby Jesus was anywhere to be found. 

The people were all busy with Christmas time chores 
Like decorating, and baking, and shopping in stores. 

No one sang "Away in a manger, no crib for a bed". 
Instead, they sang of Santa dressed-up in bright red. 

Mama watched Martha Stewart, Papa drank beer from a tap. 
As hour upon hour the presents they'd wrap. 

When, what from the T.V. did they suddenly hear? 
Except an ad which told of a big sale at Sears. 

So away to the mall they all flew like a flash, 
Buying things on credit and others with cash! 

And, as they made their way home from their trip to the mall, 
Did they think about Jesus? Oh, no!  Not at all. 

Their lives were so busy with their Christmas time things 
No time to remember Christ Jesus, the King. 

There were presents to wrap and cookies to bake. 
How could they stop and remember who died for their sake? 

To pray to the Savior, they had no time to stop. 
Because they needed more time to "Shop until they dropped!" 

On Wal-mart! On K-mart!  On Target! On Penney's! 
On Hallmark! On Zales!  A quick lunch at Denny's. 

From the big stores downtown to the stores at the mall 
They would dash away, dash away, and visit them all! 

And up on the roof, there arose such a clatter 
As grandpa hung icicle lights up on his brand new step ladder. 

He hung lights that would flash.  He hung lights that would twirl. 
Yet, he never once prayed to Jesus; Light o! f the World. 

Christ's eyes, how they twinkle!  Christ's Spirit, how merry! 
Christ's love, how enormous!  All our burdens, He'll carry! 

So instead of being busy, overworked, and uptight 
Let's put Christ back in Christmas and enjoy some good nights! 

Merry Christmas!
