Holy Christmas!

by Russ Priestley

        There is one disputed fact I find.
        Christmas is a state of mind.

        In many sporadic spots on Earth,
        It marks the day of Christ's birth,   
        A belief in which some will scoff,
        But won't refuse to take that day off.

        Tolerance abounds throughout our nation,
        Unlike any other in all Creation.
        Does anyone else find it is rather queer,
        Other religions celebrate this time of year.

        This explains the use of "Season's Greeting."
        An all-encompassing term when meeting.
        It satisfies all religious cores
        And the bottom line of all the stores.
