Jingle All the Way (by Dan Bremnes)

This was written by Dan Bremnes, and here are two versions.

The first version is his animated, lyrics version:


The second is a live, acoustic guitar version:


Please read the commentary on the second one with a grain of salt, if you read it at all. ;-)

It's OK to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and still have Christmas trees and other traditional things around, as long as you know the difference, and that Santa Claus is made up (even though possibly based on the life of a "saint" named Nicholas.

(By the way, if you believe that Jesus is Lord, then you have become "sanctified through Christ..." which means you are a true saint, which is what sanctified means, and all that means is that you love Jesus as your Lord and Savior. The Catholic church can "sanctify" anyone they want, but it means nothing to God. What does mean something to Him is when we get sanctified by accepting Jesus as Lord.)

Anyway...Saint Nicholas was a real man, but Santa Claus is not. So if we celebrate Christmas only for the reason of having Santa Claus bring gifts, etc., then we are celebrating Christmas for entirely the wrong reason. "Christmas" means "birth of the anointed one." The anointed one of whom? God! So when we celebrate Christmas, truly, we should be keeping that in mind, in spite of the other trappings of the season.

This songwriter, I think, has done a nice job of incorporating the two parts of our generalized Christmas celebration, by focusing on the reason why we (as Christians) do celebrate His birth.

So...having said all of that, which may have done nothing but confuse you, but I hope not...I do hope you enjoy the song, which was originally posted in our chat panel, by Patty! Thanks, Patty!!! :friends:
