Jesus Vs. Santa - Poem by Greg Oosterhouse
Christmas time is near,
A time to celebrate Jesus' birth.
A time that most hold dear,
A gift for all people of this earth.
It also has become a time to give.
Presents are given to loved ones to show we care.
In these times that we live,
Materialism now seems to be the focus, don't anyone dare
Sing carols about His birth,
But those like 'Jingle Bells' are fine.
Kids think Santa Claus traveling the earth,
Pulled by flying reindeer hooked to a line
Is the main thing at this time of year.
Poor Jesus is almost forgotten.
While some folks drink up the wine and beer,
It sure has become rotten.
So when Christmas comes,
You will not see decorations for me,
Like you see in many homes.
Those decorations seem to be
More about gifts than Jesus.
So, instead of 'Grandma got run over by a Reindeer',
Songs like that can cause many sneezes,
Sometimes annoying to the ear,
I want all to sing 'Happy Birthday Dear Jesus',
That is a more fitting song.
Then He'll smile when He sees us,
Thinking of Him, doing so is not wrong.
