horsegrinch,

By celebrating Christmas, am I not a true believer in Christ?

Ooh, for that you can have a kiss under the mistletoe!

I have a hard time imagining you praising anyone or anything.

I do not see other citing the source of theirs. Why mine needs special treatment? Who was the first person to put "merry" and "Christmas" together? Can you cite the source?

I wrote : You should acknowledge the source of your quote written at 5:03 PM and put quotation marks around it.

You answered "I do not see other citing the source of theirs. Why mine needs special treatment?"

I'll make it clear to the community that it is not your own work.

To you all :

The extremely long post Albert Ip wrote on December 20th at 5:03 PM commencing "Please accept, and/or renew" was not his own work. He copied it from somewhere, but did not put the source.

Please see my post to him of December 21st at 10:46 PM today in connection with this subject.

Albert Ip says:
Do you have any evidence to support the claim that the season greeting is NOT my work? If not, I demand you to retract your "announcement".

You have not answered my question who was the first to put "merry" before "christmas". You MUST give a reason why those saying "merry christmas" do not need to cite the source.

No, you are not a Christian. The holiday tree and the time of the festivity are Pagan traditions stole by the Christians.

Your answer is superfluous, as you have *already indicated* it is not your work.

"I do not see other (sic) citing the source of theirs. Why mine (sic) need special treatment?" you wrote.

You can hardly put two words together, can you?

Albert Ip says:

As I am wrongfully accused, it is you who need to provide the evidence. You are too lazy to do a google and try to track the source, ain't you?

When you say "merry christmas" to someone, do you cite your source?

Yes, I can't put two words together, but I wrote that piece, believe it or not?

The original has only part of the first paragraph distributed around 2001 from CSIRO downunder. I have been modifying it ever since. See my 2004 version here http://elearningrandomwalk.blogspot.com.au/2004/12/season-greeting.html The bulk of the message is from me and there are many different versions in the web, the earliest (except mine) was around 2005.

>Your answer is superfluous, as you have *already indicated* it is not your work.

Oh, you are really lazy. When I first replied, I cited you my blog!

Now you know the source, I am expecting an apology.

<<false tradition
lies told by the pope>>

It is high time that you give the pope a break. The biblical scholar Marcello Craveri wrote the following on Page 39 of "The Life of Jesus," Grove Press (1967) The Life of Jesus

"In Rome the feast of Sol Invictus [celebrated on December 25 as Dies Natalis Solis Invicti] always marked the end of a festival even more ancient but equally dedicated to the celebration of the self-renewal of nature: the Saturnalia. Based on the mythical era of the god Saturn, supposed to have been an age of happiness, peace, and brotherhood among all men, the Saturnalia in those days was a time in which the Romans abandoned themselves to touching demonstrations of friendship and affection. Even slaves had the right to sit at table with their masters and be served by them during the festival. It was a simple matter for Christianity--which was based fundamentally on universal brotherhood--to replace the heathen belief in the age of Saturn without impairing the admirable customs of the Saturnalia."

T'was Saturday before Christmas,
And all through the shop,
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even the mop.

The hoists were all standing,
No cars in the air,
When suddenly the phone rang,
Brake hoses? A pair?

A '51 Pick-up,
To shop for his tree.
Will it still make the trip,
For his family with glee?

Yes we will stay open,
That joy may be had,
No brakes in that Pick-up,
Would really be bad.

A family happy,
To find us still here,
So they may have Christmas,
Without any fear.

That old Ford's still rolling,
In it's 61st year,
Into the twilight,
On a Midnight so clear.

Happily, happily,
Rolling along,
Joyfully, joyfully,
Singing their song...

We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
And a Happy New Year!

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men

And the bells are ringing ( Peace on earth)
Like a choir they're singing (Peace on earth)
In my heart I hear them ( Peace on earth)
Peace on earth, good will to men

And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men

But the bells are ringing (Peace on earth)
Like a choir singing (Peace on earth)
Does anybody hear them? (Peace on earth)
Peace on earth, good will to men

Then rang the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor does He sleep (He is The Lord)
(He is The Lord)
The dark shall fail, the light prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men

Then ringing singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men

And the bells they're ringing (Peace on earth)
Like a choir they're singing (Peace on earth)
And with our hearts we'll hear them (Peace on earth)
Peace on earth, good will to men

Do you hear the bells they're ringing?
They're like the angels singing
Open up your heart and hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men
Peace on earth, Peace on earth
Peace on earth, Good will to men

i like very much the brookly tabernacle's version.

M. Galishoff says:
Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed,
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head;
The stars in the heavens
Looked down where He lay,
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing,
The poor Baby wakes,
But little Lord Jesus,
No crying He makes.
I love Thee, Lord Jesus;
Look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle
Till morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus;
I ask Thee to stay
