Whichever holiday you celebrate, be sure to make it a good one

This Oct. 13 at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., President Donald Trump said, “We’re saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”

I didn’t realize the White House and Americans stopped saying this. We didn’t actually.

At our workplaces, at our churches, at our family and friends’ gatherings and even at department stores, we still say “Merry Christmas.”

On many shopping trips, sales associates often have wished me a “Merry Christmas.”

Chosen Words

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 by The Press in Opinion


Holidays are wonderful;

they put you in the mood;

Fun and family gatherings,

and tons of fattening food.

There’s turkey, ham and candied yams,

cranberry sauce galore.

Cakes and pies and cookies, too,

and always so much more

The food is very plentiful, in fact,

there’s way too much;

But, we keep eating more and more,

’til everyone is stuffed!

After all have eaten, it’s time to clean the mess.

The women have to do it,

’cause the men won’t help, I guess.

The men sit down and watch TV,
