Scared Monkeys

Scared Monkeys wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas. A special wish to those who will not be spending Christmas with their families. A special thanks to the men and women of our Armed Forces. God bless them, everyone.

A special Christmas wish to those families also who have lost loved one’s. May you find peace during this Christmas season and that you find comfort from your pain. A Christmas wish to those who have sacrificed for others understanding that it is greater to give than receive.

Our favorite scene from Its a Charlie Brown Christmas …

Luke 2:10-17

And the angel said to them, Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David;  a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord This will be a sign to you: You wilt find a baby wrapped in strips of cloths and lying in a manger.

UPDATE I: Iraq Declares Christmas an Official Holiday

Iraq’s Christians, a small minority in the overwhelmingly Muslim country, quietly celebrated Christmas on Thursday with a present from the government, which declared it an official holiday for the first time.

If you think God is not at work this Christmas season, go to the Gateway Pundit and see how Christians will be celebrating Christmas without fear in the predominately Muslim country of Iraq.

      Merry Christmas to you.

      I guess our presence in Iraq wasn’t in vain after all if the Christians are allowed to celebrate Christmas.

      God Bless

      I don’t get here that often anymore, but wanted to wish all the Monkeys a very Merry Christmas and a new year filled with joy.

      Happy Yuletide, Yulefest, Yules, Jul, Juletid, Julfest, Jül, Jól, Joul, Joulu, Jõulud, Joelfeest, Géol, Feailley Geul, Midwinter, Winter Solstice! ;)

      “Yule or Yule-tide is a winter festival that was initially celebrated by the historical Germanic peoples as a pagan religious festival, though it was later absorbed into, and equated with, the Christian festival of Christmas. In modern times, Yule is observed as a cultural festival and also with religious rites by some Christians and by some Neopagans.”

      Merry Christmas to all fellow monkeys!:) Love Charlie Brown’s Christmas, Garfield’s, Frosty, Rudolph, It’s a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, Holiday Inn, Christmas Story and on and on..they are the best.. Christmas truly isn’t about what you get, it’s what you do for others and spending time with loved ones.

      My thoughts to all the families with missing children today..

      From a fellow Hoosier born in Bloomington, Indiana , Bobby Helms..and Jingle Bell Rock..

      Dear Scared Monkeys,

      Can I hear a Happy Hanukkah? Or is this a strictly Christian board?

      LouiseVarges (#8) … Let’s hope (or wish, anyway) that members of all religions celebrate their beliefs. I’m reminded of a story in one restaurant where Christian, Jewish, and Muslim employees all pitched in and worked on the ‘holy days’ of each other, allowing members of each faith to celebrate in their own ways, without having to disparage or feel threatened by the religious beliefs of others.

      Now THAT is, in my mind, as eloquent a testimony to the spirit of true religion as can be seen.
