Merry Christmas to all.


I think Ray Charles expresses it best.  Listen and reflect.

Thank you, Marty and others for this thread.  On the other hand, from politically correct California, here is our approved season's greeting:


Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. 


I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2017, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere.


Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

Thanks Grimy,


Sad - funny, but still sad...


Merry Christmas,

Happy Hanukkah,

Happy Kwanzaa,


and whatever else you feel appropriate for those you hold dear



Down here in Cajun Country,

with Tee-Pee shaped Bonfires a-blazin',

Pere Noel is comin' up 'da Bayou in his Batteau,

pulled by Gaston the Green-nosed Alligator,

with gifts and toys for the good li'l Chill'ren,


... and Hanukkah Harry is right alongside him, too.

Cajun Night Before Christmas 'Twas the night before Christmas, an' all t'ru de house,

Dey don't a t'ing pass, not even a mouse.

De chirren been nezzle good snug on de flo',

An' Mama pass de pepper t'ru de crack on de do'.

Den Mama in de fireplace done roas' us de ham,

Stir up de gumbo, an' make de baked yam

Den out on de bayou dey got such a clatter...

Make soun' like old Boudreaux done fall off his ladder.

I run like a rabbit to got to de do'...

Trip over de dawg an' fall on de flo'!

As I look out de do' in de light o' de moon, I t'ink,

"Manh, you crazy, or got ole too soon."

Cuz dere on de bayou when I stretch ma' neck stiff...

Dere's eight alligator a-pullin' de skiff...

An' a little fat drover wit' a lone polein' stick...

I know r'at away got to be ole St. Nick...

Mo' fas'er an' fas'er de 'gator dey came.

He whistle an' holler an' call dem by name:

"Ha, Gaston! Ha, Tiboy! Ha, Pierre an' Alcee!

Gee, Ninette! Gee, Suzette! Celeste an' Renee!"

To de top o' de porch dem ole 'gator clime!

Wit' de skiff full o' toy an' St. Nicklus behin'.

Den on top de porch roof it soun' like de hail

When all dem big 'gator done sot down dey tail!----

Den down de chimney he fell wit' a bam...

An' St. Nicklus fall an' sit on de yam!

"SACRE!" he axclaim "Ma pant got a hole.

I done sot mase'f on dem red hot coal!"

He got on his foots an' jump like a cat...

Out to de flo' where he lan' wit' a SPLAT!

He was dress in musk-rat from his head to his foot

An' his clothes is all dirty wit' ashes an' soot.

A sack full o' playt'ing he t'row on his back.

He look like a burglar, an' dass fo' a fack!

His eyes how dey shine...his dimple, how merry!

Maybe he been drink de wine from blackberry!

His cheek was like rose...his nose like a cherry...

On secon' tought maybe he lap up de sherry! ---

Wit' snow-white chin whisker an' quiverin' belly,

He shook when he laugh like de stromberry jelly!

But a wink in his' a shook o' his head...

Make my confidance dat I soon got to be scared.

He don' do no talkin'...gone straight to his work...

Put playt'ing in sock an' den turn wit' a jerk!

He put bot' his han' dere on top o' his head,

He cas' an eye on de chimney an' den he done said:

"Wit' all o' dat fire an' dem burnin' hot flame.. .

Me I ain' goin' back by de way dat I came."

So he run out de do' an' he clime to de roof...

He ain' no fool, him, for to make one more goof.

He jump in his skiff an' crack his big whip.

De 'gator move down an' don' make one slip.

An' I hear him shout loud as a splashin' he go:

"Marry C'rismas to all...till I saw you some mo'!"
