Merry Christmas from the Family

Hallelujah, everybody say cheese... I hereby present Robert Earl Keen's Christmas classic Merry Christmas from the Family. (Yankee readers are certainly free to sit this one out!)

Feliz Navidad!

My father's family's Christmases are almost always like that! My mother's family tries to overcome the redneckness within, but it will come roaring to life sometimes. Their Christmases would be like that if more of us drank. :-)

I don't know; I think it translates. Some of my NYC friends got it, and not just the transplanted Southerners.

Where are my manners? Merry Christmas! I hope you're having a wonderful day.

Daisy...Mr.E said you would "get this one:

"Lord, in this holy season of prayer and song and laughter, we praise you for the great wonders you have sent us: for shining star and angel's song, for infant's cry in lowly manger. We praise you for the Word made flesh in a little Child. We behold his glory, and are bathed in its radiance.

Be with us as we sing the ironies of Christmas, the incomprehensible comprehended, the poetry made hard fact, the helpless Babe who cracks the world asunder. We kneel before you shepherds, innkeepers, wisemen. Help us to rise bigger than we are. Amen."

the jew grins, nods and says, Merry Christmas!

Dear Anonymous, I have taken the liberty of copying your post and posting it onto the proper thread. (Feast of St Stephen, Dec. 26) It does not belong on the Christmas thread.

Try to contain yourself.
