Another one in answer to the complaint that Christmas is pagan and that Christians shouldn’t celebrate it.
“Why would a Christian celebrate
A pagan holiday?
Why would you choose remembering
Our Savior in this way?
He wasn’t born in wintertime.
He didn’t want a tree.
Jews didn’t celebrate men’s births.
It’s pagan, don’t you see?”
Well, God sent down an angel choir
To celebrate His birth.
Proclaiming peace and God’s good will
To shepherds here on earth.
The wise men journeyed very far
When they learned of His birth.
So Jewish shepherds, gentile men,
And Angels showed the worth
Of celebrating God made flesh
And dwelling here with men.
So each year, I will celebrate,
My Savior’s birth again.
I know the date is likely wrong;
I know traditions fail.
But I will choose to honor God
No matter how you rail.
I do not honor pagan gods
Or even Santa Claus.
God knows my heart; I worship Him.
It all is for His cause.
