The focus of Christmas should not be on Santa, but on the birth of the King of Kings!

Merry Christmas to everyone and may Jesus Christ bless you and yours in the coming year as only He can!

I think Christmas should be done away with from a retail and gift-giving standpoint and simply be celebrated for what it really is. Turn Santa Claus back into a Saint and everybody go to church (all believers, that is ~ the rest of you can stay in your caves and complain) and celebrate the real reason for the holiday.

Retailers have raped this time of year and you can see proof of this by trying to go out in public ~ you'll see what people turn into ~ the exact opposite of the way they should be acting. You'll never see so may assholes on the road as you do this time of year; trying to get their last minute shopping done in a fit of selfishness. Everyone is walking around the stores, talking on their cell phones, wrapped up in their own little worlds with total disregard for their fellow man.

It's all Bush's fault.


Just kidding. It's really the Democrats.

OH PLEASE!! Every year this is brought up! Do we need to keep rehashing all this crap? Don't you people have better things to do with your time than to bash traditions that accompany or compliment religious holidays? Can you not celebrate both religious holidays and traditions at the same time? Are your minds just too narrow to celebrate and enjoy both? Can we cook that Easter Bunny next?

Santa Clause and Jesus - Two of the greatest illusion ever conceived by mankind.

God bless us all, everyone.

The real reason for Christmas is based on the Roman celebration Saturnalia and other winter pagan festivals. It's really a time for drunken orgies or worshiping the sun and trees.

In fact, the protestant church banned Christmas for hundreds of years because it was basically just a time to party.

If anything, the baby jebus has ruined it.

Is Santa praying over his eventual meal? Creepy!

I just saw a Massachusetts license plate. The motto on the plate is "The Spirit of America."

Is Massachusetts REALLY the Spirit of America?

I think not.

Did anyone read the following letter to the editor in the latast WCMessenger? It was PRICELESS!! Barry you have to get a picture of the dead rudolph display! Anybody know where the dead rudolph is located? WE NEED PICS!!

HERE IS THE LETTER FRESH FROM WCMESSENGER.COM

Display is in poor taste
By Mark Pakulak
Published Thursday, December 20, 2007

One of the things my family enjoys about the Christmas season is driving around and looking at the various displays of lights and decorations on area homes and businesses. Unfortunately, we do not have to travel far to find an attempt at a Christmas display that totally obliterates the line of good taste.

A local business has chosen to get into the Christmas spirit by displaying a lighted figure of a reindeer adjacent to the busy highway. One problem. This reindeer is suspended upside down with a ribbon of red lights coming out of its stomach and coiling down onto the ground beneath it to create a lighted "gutted and bleeding" reindeer for all passing vehicles to enjoy.

I am an adult and see the humor that was intended, however, what about the thousands of young kids that drive by the display on a nightly basis? Maybe the business would like to light their business number up next to the reindeer so that parents could have a number to call to try to explain to their young kids exactly why one of Santa's reindeer appears to be hung up, dead and bleeding next to the highway. This is one display that has clearly crossed the line of good taste.

These picture is quite bizarre and sick to me. Why is the baby's diaper off and Santa is straddling him? Am I seeing it correctly? If so, Barry please take it off!

It is not "unstable."

I love the Santa paying homage to Baby Jesus.

Get your Grinch head out of your Bah Humbug *ss.

12:51 how can you tell that his diaper is off?

11:45AM Please tell the rest of the story---you're exactly right that Christmas was a pagan funfest until 336AD. However, good 'ol Emperor Constantine ended the pagan funfest at this time and made the event an official "Christian" holiday thas been celebrated as Christmas ever since.

Man's commercialism and materialism have indeed tainted Christmas, but Jesus is the reason for the season.

Thank you 1:53!!! (Where were you when I needed you on that other post?) Glad to see another Christian standing by the truth!

I believe the dead hanging lighted deer is on 380 toward Runaway Bay on the left before East Bay Estates...

Well, Baby Jesus' diaper is not off and Santa is not straddling him. If you pay close attention you see that it is Santa's Hat that he doesn't have on his head lying next to him. He is kneeling in prayer over that baby Jesus.

The business in question is the gun store/firing range/meat processing establishment on US380 between Bridgeport & Runaway Bay.

It's amazing to me that in a land that at the time almost entirely consisted of darkly skinned people, Jesus happened to come out of Mary as a Caucasian.

For those that don't get it, the simple point of the figure is that even Santa knows why there is a Christmas. So 10:48 and others, why not stop and think at least for a MOMENT before reacting to something in the same old way. The focus of the figure is ENTIRELY on Jesus, not Santa.

If you dont like what Christmas has become then stop shopping, get off the roads, and out of my way! When I was a girl I loved waking up to presents under the tree. It was also one of the few days that I got to see all of my aunts, uncles, grandparents, and all of the rest of my family and a few close friends. Now that I am older and have kids of my own I see that it was just as much fun for my parents to see all of our excitement and surprise as it was for us. And this is still my favorite part of the year because I still get to see my family that I dont otherwise.

After writing this I do think that the reason for Christmas is forgotten more than I had thought. Maybe this year we should go to midnight service like we did when I was a child.

South Park had Jesus Vs Santa Claus on one episode where they have this huge fist fight.

Now that's entertainment.

The business with the deer hanging upside down is Bridgeport Guns and Ammo, west of Bridgeport on 380. I hunt, alot, and I think this display is sick. Everyone call and tell Mr. Bernardo, the owner, what you think about it. It needs to come down. Phone number is (940) 683-1777.

Were this a yard decoration - which it probably is in life-size somewhere in either Wilbarger or Wise counties - then it would fall into the category of "Schizophrenic Yard." If you've never played - it's a great game. Basically, it's a seasonless form of entertainment. Flamingos with the Holy Mother, Lawn Jockeys juxtaposed with those creepy stuffed "kids" who are leaning against a tree and "crying", and yes, the Christ Child and St. Nick.
