    thank you, and many good wishes to you,
    MY BAD HABITS, torment me,
    I thought my new laptop woul lend itself to correct me,
    but he has it worse than the previous one,
    I waste a lot of time checking the caps on or out,
    and my thought process is loosing his flow of words, in the thread, if i check caps on and on,
    while keeping my thoughts intacts, I’m limited on the lapsus of time to keep my wording all the way, if i concentrate on the caps, which are on and out without help from me,
    but I’m working on it,
    bear with me PLEASE,

    World War I Enemies Laid Down Their Arms for the Christmas Truce of 1914

    It started in the dark of night on Christmas Eve 1914. British soldiers, crouched in their trenches, heard “Stille Nacht” (Silent Night) being sung in the German trenches across the way. The British then sang a carol in response. (snip)

    Suddenly lights began to appear along the German parapet, which were evidently makeshift Christmas trees, adorned with lighted candles, which burnt steadily in the still, frosted air! … First the Germans would sing one of their carols and then we would sing one of ours, until we started up “O Come, All Ye Faithful” the Germans immediately joined in singing the same hymn [in Latin]. And I thought, well, this is really a most extraordinary things–two nations both signing the same carol in the middle of a war.

    After this, voices from the German side screamed, “Don’t shoot,” and from the British side the call, “No shooting,” came up as well. Then a German soldier crawled out of the trenches and walked across no man’s land to meet a British soldier who had crawled out of his trench and was doing the same. They shook hands and soon no man’s land was filling with men from both sides who were pouring out of their trenches to say, “Merry Christmas.”

    They exchanged what meager gifts they had, laughed, and even played a game of soccer in the light of Christmas Day.

    Christmas Day also marked a joint Christmas service wherein prayers were spoken and psalms were read while “Germans formed up one side, the English the other, the officers standing in front, every head bared.”

    With Obama’s extremist efforts dedicated to far-left transformation of the military with a decidedly hostile anti-Christian bent, such a moment of peace today would result in disciplinary actions on the American troops involved.

    UNBELIEVELE, i heard of it some time ago, but you gave a better detailed replay of it,
    thank you, it”s unique, no where else did we heard a similar event,
    and yet it was the spirit of CHRISTMAS, A POWER UNEQUALED ,
    push by the only GOD of the universe, wispering to one man,
    and a truce started for a time, before they who died, had a last peace wish,
    thank you for that,

    (VA) Hospital Bans Christmas Carolers From Singing Religious Songs

    The Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center announced the new policy Monday according to the Athens-Banner Herald.

    “Military service veterans, male and female, represent people of all faiths,” hospital spokesman Brian Rothwell said in a statement according to Athens-Banner Herald. “It is out of respect for every faith that The Veterans Administration gives clear guidance on what ‘spiritual care’ is to be given and who is to give it.”

    A group of high school students from Augusta’s Alleluia Community School were prevented from singing traditional holiday songs that honor and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ to veterans by the medical center last week.

    The school principal, Dan Funsch, told the newspaper that he was disappointed that the Veterans Affairs hospital’s “spiritual care” grants holiday exemption only to secular characters that make up the 12 Days of Christmas.

    “This is not a religious proselytizing, evangelistic issue,” Funsch explained, arguing that Christmas songs are broadcast during the holidays on area radio stations and in local retail outlets. “The song Joy to the World is as much a part of the holiday spirit as the Christmas tree.”

    The principal noted that the peculiar part of the policy is its recent enforcement.

    The hospital spokesman could not provide an accurate date of when the ban began, but Funsch stated his students were welcomed with open arms in 2011 and 2012.

    And more Heatbreak: Terminally ill girl who had 10,000 people sing Christmas carols at her home Saturday has died

    Delaney Brown, 8, was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. In her last week she was granted a few wishes including 10,000 people who sang Christmas carols at her house and talking to Taylor Swift.

    People filled the 400 block of Chestnut Street, Saturday in West Reading, Pa., where thousands of people came out to sing Christmas carols in front of Brown’s home.

    Delaney Brown, 8, of West Reading “passed away quietly with her loving family by her side,” family spokesman Christopher Winters said in a statement Wednesday.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS! (by DENNIS PRAGER):

    It doesn’t matter with which religion or ethnic group you identify; Christmas in America is as American as the proverbial apple pie. That is why some of the most famous and beloved Christmas songs were written by guess who? Jews.

    “White Christmas” was written by Irving Berlin (birth name: Israel Isidore Baline).
    “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” — Johnny Marks.
    “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” — composed by Jule Styne, lyrics by Sammy Cahn.
    “Silver Bells” — by Jay Livingston (Jacob Harold Levison) and Ray Evans (Raymond Bernard Evans).
    “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)” — Mel Torme and Robert Wells (Robert Levinson), both Jews.
    “Sleigh Ride” — lyrics by Mitchell Parish (Michael Hyman Pashelinsky).

    THIS JEWS WISHES ALL CHRISTIANS A MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    As Paul Harvey would say, “Here’s,,,,,,,the,,,,,,,,,,, rest of the story.” When the ones in charge found out about the Christmas party, they knew that our guys wouldn’t be able to fight the Germans again, so they had them transferred.

    This post started out with the “Joy” of Christmas. Can we please keep it that way? Let’s do like the German and American soldiers did and have a party.

    Curt,
    You are a gift to conservatives.
