ACLU Laudes Christmas in Song about Jesus Christ and The Reason for the Season

Here’s a quick lesson for retailers. If we don’t see Merry Christmas in your window, we’ll walk right past your door, so beware. Don’t try to take Christmas from us…we know you want your tills a-ringin,’ but there is only one reason for Chrismas around the world. Full disclosure: The video is by the ACLU = The American Christian Life United Choir. The message: Christmas isn’t just ANOTHER holiday.’ The words to this jingle are so spot-on. Bet your kids and grandkids would have singing along. The lyrics are on the video.

The Reason for the Season

If…you…don’t see Merry Christmas in the window

No! You don’t go in that store.

If you don’t see Merry Christmas in the window

Yes! You walk right by that door

Oh, it’s all about the little baby Jesus and my Savior’s day of birth

It’s the one and only reason that we celebrate the season

Wishing love to all and peace upon the earth

If you don’t hear Merry Christmas when they greet you

When you’re walking through their store

Simply turn and say –

It’s very nice to meet you

As you walk right out that door

Words are chosen every year to hid it’s Christmas

The reason for our Hol-i-day

They’re not happy what we’re singin’

But they want their tills a ringin’

Tryin’ to sell my Christmas every other way

Come and stand out from the crowd,

Say Merry Christmas and be proud

Christmas …isn’t…just another Holiday

What would be missing, now let’s see, if not for christ’s nativity

No Silent Night or First Noels

No Santa’s sleigh or Jingle Bells

No star atop the Christmas tree

No special day for fam-il-y

No bells that ring for angels wings

No dolls and trains that Santa brings

No Drummer boys or Tiny Tim

No Mr. Scrooge, we all know him

No list of who’s been good or bad

Well?…maybe that won’t be too sad!

No candy canes or mistletoe

No Christmas lights out in the snow

No stockings hung with so much care

Hoping Santa finds them there

And one more thang there wouldn’t be…

no-ooo part-ridge in a pear

Rump a Pum…Pum…

If…you…don’t see Merry Christmas in the window

No! You don’t go in that store.

If you don’t see Merry Christmas in the window

Yes! You walk right by that door

If you don’t believe the reasons for my Christmas, then it’s sure ok with me

Please don’t tell me what to say or what music I can play

After all my Christmas is my Special Day!

Come and stand out from the crowd,

Say Merry Christmas and be proud

Christmas…isn’t…just another Holiday
