I Love Christmas!

For my money’s worth, music doesn’t get any better than this. The Communist Islamists among you may disagree, but that’s why you’re the bad guys. If you can’t appreciate great music for what it is, you have no place in an American Christmas. Go sign up for the John Walker Lindh brigade of the Taliban, but leave us our art and our religion and our culture.

That’s how I feel about it, anyway. God bless America, and God bless Christmas!


  1. I enjoy the Jingle Bell Rock, though i gotta admit: when every readio station is just playing Christmas carols, it can get really repetitive. Moderation is all I’m suggesting.

  2. Right on, Brother Sisyphus! I am with you all the way. Those communist islamists suck! Oh yeah. I know: some of you think that joining two completely opposite terms, like the atheist “communist” with the hyper-religious group “islamists,” is incredibly ignorant. But you don’t understand the Christian mindset. To us they are just words that indicate relative degrees of “badness” that’s all. We feel free to say instead of “I am having a horrible, no-good, very bad day,” we say “I am having a communist, islamist, evil-doer day” (okay, I threw that last one in without warning. But you got to admit, it fits.) Come on, words mean things, people! Get with the program!

    And thank you for ending with “God bless America, and God bless Christmas!” Thank you! Thank you! You know, back in the old days (before the Moral Majority began its glorious attempts to make this a theocratic nation), sentiments like that were expressed in the form of a prayer, like “May God bless this house and all those who dwell within it.” But we modern Christians know that’s just sissy talk. Now days, we don’t ask, we take! (War with Iraq? We took it! War with Iran? We’ll take that, too! Why do want so much war? Because we follow the teachings of Jesus, the Prince of Peace. See how it works?) So now days, instead of ASKING God for his blessing, we TAKE it! We DEMAND it! No longer do we say “May God bless America” we say “God bless America!” (the “dammit!” is implied). It’s like grabbing God by the collar and showing Him who’s boss!

    God Bless Sisyphus!

    P.S. Hey! I see this website was nominated for Best Conservative blog! Congratulations! I looked at the list and noticed how your name showed up once amongst hundreds of nominees. That’s great! And considering there are thousands of high-ranking, highly-respected conservatives out there, to be nominated by someone called “Scruffy McSnufflepuss” is high praise indeed!

  3. Merry Christmas indeed, and Happy Hanukah, and Happy Kwanzaa too. Oh, and a happy new year as well.

  4. Liberal Fascists?!!

    Come on, Jonah Goldberg is a Republican lickspittle, one of the most intellectually dishonest people in America. And that is not an ad hominem attack, is the truth!

    BTW, for details on how Somali refugees are faring in increasingly-xenophobic Minnesota, see (the facetiously titled):

  5. I happened to see an episode of the show “South Park” and they were saying that they were going to have a musical Christmas special..

    but then they had Jews signing and then Hitler and the Devil himself…and it got too much when they had a whole song about a piece of singing poo.

    I had to lock myself in my prayer closet to recover.

    Have you ever read Stephen King’s Carrie, perchance?

  9. Huh, I didn’t know Silent Night, Holy Night was translated into German.

    You did leave out O Little Town of Bethlehem, O Holy Night, O Christmas Tree and We Three Kings among others.

    There’s a pretty good list of Christmas carols here.

  10. “Silent Night, Holy Night” was originally written by the German composer Franz Gruber.

    I was merely trying to popularize some of the lesser-known carols, which are every bit as good as those, but less overplayed.

    And your list includes the pagan carol “Deck The Halls.” Note that the lyrics mention the pagan holiday of Yule, but do not reference Christmas, and also that there are no uniquely Christian traditions mentioned therein–only the decoration of the home with evergreens, a practice which was adopted from early pagan feasts. Try again.

  11. Though they’re technically not carols, I absolutely love Christmas music performed by the Trans Siberian Orchestra.

  13. I love Christmas and “celebrate” year round … thinking of the birth of Jesus. By the way, I am posting a Christmas site based on the new book “A Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts” which emphasizes a stress-free Christmas. It is

    PS Christmas is not a day on the calendar but a frame of mind.
