I don't know how everything got so screwed up, not only with Christmas. It was all so simple growing up, having Christmas spirit. I guess the athiests and the terrorists have driven us to nostalgia
instead of cheer. Can't pray in school, can't have God in the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag, etc... I guess our grandparents felt the same way about the times of their youth, compared to when we were little. So much changes.
The following isn't a Christmas song- are we allowed to sing those anymore? But it does make you think of the way we were:
Memories, light the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories of the way we were.
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
smiles we give to one another
for the way we were.
Can it be that it was all so simple then
or has time rewritten every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
tell me would we? Could we?
Memories, may be beautiful and yet
what's too painful to remember
we simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter we will remember
whenever we remember
the way we were.
Hopefully I've not offended anyone...Merry Christmas.
