All over the city of Shenzhen in Communist China there are “Merry Christmas” signs.

This was seen in a Shenzhen mall.

But in the United States we have the Army telling soldiers not to say “Christmas.”
The Obama VA is blocking students from sending religious cards to the troops.


This year The Las Vegas Review Journal in their Christmas editorial mourns for our loss of liberty.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reported:

EDITORIAL: The gist of Christmas lost

’Twas the season of Christmas, and all through the land

Were signs and symbols some folks couldn’t stand.

The evergreen conifer many decorate with glee,

But don’t you dare call it a Christmas tree.

Heaven forbid a Nativity in the town square

For fear the grievance mongers soon would be there.

Meanwhile the choirs at many a public school

Are told no religious carols — those just aren’t that cool.

Don’t say “Christmas Concert,” for that’s full of shame.

“Winter Festival” — now that’s the new name!

Read the rest here.
