    Disney World has canceled Christmas. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, an extremely popular yuletide tradition, is going to be rebranded. Instead, the Magic Kingdom will host a night time show. The new "don't call it Christmas" event is called 'Disney Very Merriest After Hours' - a generic, holiday-themed celebration. Whoever came up with that idea deserves a lump of coal in their Christmas stocking. Disney did not provide an explanation for the change - but in recent days the woke imagineers at the Magic Kingdom have made national headlines by culturally cleansing many popular rides. Among the "offensive rides" that...
  • Say “Merry Christmas,” Not “Happy Holidays”

    Merry Christmas to all of you wonderful Americans, Christians, and patriots! Not only have we almost made it through 2020, but also it’s the most wonderful day of the year. The (symbolic) day that Christ was born and God came to Earth in human form. It’s the most important and wonderful day of the year. So, don’t be afraid to say “Merry Christmas.” Just say it. Be a brave Christian and let everyone know that you believe in the Lord and are joyously celebrating his symbolic birthday. And don’t be afraid to do so; that’s what we’re celebrating. It’s Christmas,...
  • TN Gov. Bill Lee Bans Public Gatherings Exceeding 10, Asks Residents to Limit Holiday Events to Household

    Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) is the latest state leader to urge residents to drastically limit their holiday gatherings by spending them only with members of the same household, signing an executive order limiting indoor public events to ten. In a Sunday evening address, the Republican governor identified Tennesee as “ground zero for a surge in sickness,” describing the ongoing pandemic as a “war.” Approximately 10,000 Tennesseans are getting sick daily, the governor said, largely attributing the spike to holiday gatherings — namely, the Thanksgiving gatherings

    This can't be a mistake. No one can be this dumb. No one can be this clueless. Not even Democrats. Not even moronic Democratic governors. Not even nanny-state government bureaucrats like Dr. Anthony Fauci. Fauci just asked Americans to cancel Christmas. He said, "...it's just one of those things you're going to have to accept." He reported he would not even allow his own three daughters to come home for Christmas this year. He wants all Americans to "painfully" isolate. He says he and his wife will be spending the holiday alone. I have a message for Dr Fauci: "First,...

    Christmas in California has effectively been cancelled by Emperor Gavin Newsom. And now it looks like here in L.A. we're going to be locked in our basements by the local yahoos in charge until February. But the continuing destruction of normal social and economic life in California in the name of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic is old news. Instead, let's talk about the yahoos in Washington who are continuing to screw up the whole country. The federal yahoos, it's no surprise, are the slippery politicians in Congress. Mostly Democrats but also some Republicans, for a decade they haven't had the...

    "I couldn't help but notice your Christmas light display. During these unprecedented times, we have all experienced challenges which casual words just don't describe what we're feeling. The idea of twinkling, colorful lights are a reminder of divisions that continue to run through our society, a reminder of systemic biases against our neighbors who don't celebrate Christmas or who can't afford to put up lights of their own," the letter, shared by Crime Watch Minneapolis, reads. "We must do the work of educating ourselves about the harmful impact an outward facing display like yours can have."
  • Warning! LGBTQ Christmas Movie on Hallmark

    11/18/2020 7:12:53 AM PST · by Gopher Broke · 64 replies
    Families need to be aware that Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” movie specials will be very different this year since the network will be including LGBTQ content and characters in its original movies for the first time ever. For example, The Christmas House, set to air Sunday, November 22, at 8:00 p.m. CST will include a gay couple. The cast features Johnathan Bennett and Brad Harder as gay dads-to-be through adoption. Hallmark Channel, owned by Crown Media Family Networks, announced its plans to start introducing gay and transgender storylines into its movies after receiving online complaints about the lack of...

    The first time It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown aired on television, it preempted My Three Sons. As in, an original episode of My Three Sons. The date was October 27, 1966, and Douglas family fans had just seen Yvonne Craig play a meter maid the previous week. Instead, CBS viewers got the Peanuts crew. The idea of a Peanuts holiday special, and a Peanuts cartoon in general, was still relatively novel. Great Pumpkin was just the third animated special from the mind of Charles Schulz. A Charlie Brown Christmas has premiered one year earlier. The Christmas special was so...

    Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch drove social media lefties into a frenzy on Tuesday all because of a little innocuous Season's Greetings on the Fox News Channel. The Trump nominated Supreme Court Justice wished the cable news network a “Merry Christmas” and inclusivity-obsessed progressives flipped their collective wig, accusing the statement of being a "talking point of the GOP.” Host Ainsley Earhardt introduced the Justice, saying, “A rare live interview. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. Good Morning to you.” Gorsuch responded with an earnest “Merry Christmas!” to which Earhardt replied, “I love that you say that!” BBC commentator Amee Vanderpool...

    Parents of children at a primary school in Essex are appalled after the head teacher ruled that children should sing ‘baby boy Jesus’ rather than ‘little Lord Jesus’ in the Christmas carol, Away in a Manger - so that pupils of all beliefs can join in. Pupils at Whitehall Primary School in Chingford, Essex, have also been told to sing edited versions of two modern hymns when they attend a carol service and nativity at a nearby church on Tuesday. One mother of children at the school, Margarita said: “I picked my children up at the end of the day...

    Many on the left (as opposed to liberals) have been warring on Christmas for more than a generation. Leftists always deny there is a war on Christmas and mock those who claim there is. There is a mind-blowing chutzpah or lack of self-awareness when people do something and yet deny that they are actually doing it. But the evidence is overwhelming. The left has stopped schools from calling Christmas vacations by that name -- the name schools called them throughout American history until the last couple of decades. Almost every non-Christian school in America now calls Christmas vacation "winter break."...

Researchers say you’re not alone.According to Business Insider, studies found there’s a spike in holiday music listening during the last two months of the year.

    A majority of Germans say they would consider scaling down their Christmas lights to protect the climate, a survey released on Sunday said. A total of 57% of those surveyed said they would reduce Christmas lighting or even do without it in the future, according to the survey conducted by YouGov on behalf of the German news agency DPA. Of the respondents, 11% said they would make do without any lights this year due to climate concerns, while 10% said they would do so in the future.

    We all know some individuals who are so obviously good and kind that we are certain if anyone were to dislike them, that’s all we would need to know about the person. We would immediately assume he or she is a bad person. To hate the manifestly good is a sure sign of being bad. Such is the case regarding the Left’s hatred of the Salvation Army. You don’t have to be a Christian — I am not — to appreciate the goodness of the people who run and work for the Salvation Army. They devote their lives to helping...

    As we head into the Christmas season, religious liberty in America continues to be under attack, and it’s not just about whether people can say “Merry Christmas” in public places. With the recent controversy over Chick-fil-A bowing to pressure to end its financial support of charities the far left has labeled as “anti-gay,” organizations that dare to hold onto certain deeply held religious beliefs will likely be punished for it. I have served on the national boards of the two charities that Chick-fil-A will no longer be supporting, the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). Both charities...

    While many are still reeling from recent revelations that Chick-fil-A has opportunistically traded the Christian principles upon which it was founded for “woke,” pro-LGBT social justice causes, the head of the Hallmark Channel —famous for its family-friendly Christmas movies— indicated that Hallmark will likely begin to produce holiday films which include gay characters and themes. This year, Hallmark's legendary “Countdown to Christmas” will feature two dozen new, original movies produced by the channel. They will be shown 24 hours a day during the weeks leading up to Christmas. Bill Abbott, CEO of Hallmark parent Crown Media Family Networks (CMFN), said...
