In His day, as well as yours, governments are naughty. So with Mary, and the baby Jesus, in hiding for fear that the government would kill him. There had to be a way to celebrate His birth and sneak one past the government. Now there’s a novel challenge for His followers today.
And there was! You see says I, twinkling atop your tree. Late December, was the time the Roman government allowed the Romans to celebrate Saturnalia. It was a Roman festival in late December to honor the god Saturn. So they did with marvelous festivities in celebrate merry making. Complete with banquets and the exchanging of gifts. And 0! How happy Rome was. Cause governments then and today keep the focus on the dark side, away from the light. And says I twinkling atop your tree, so does ours. That you have learned from WikiLeaks a time ago.
And what you have not learned, says I, twinkling atop your tree. Is that America is God’s city on a hill, and like me a light. To be protected from the darkness. Lots of work to be done celebrators.
But more to the point, honoring the god of Saturn, the deity of darkness served us well. And maybe it’ll do the same for you. Like us, and for you, it’ll take ingenuity and bravery. An in born Jesus trait.
Cause says, I atop your tree twinkling. To be a Christ worshiper in those days was dangerous, not like our day, unless a Muslim devil gets a hold of you. Cause Christians were being vigorously prosecuted by the Romans. Like movements in your country, says I atop your tree twinkling. Whose secrets are revealed in order to make for a better America. And you know, that God frowns upon same sex marriages. And, horrors of horrors, LGBT represents pure darkness. And you know, that Jesus doesn’t need gays in His military to keep America safe.

Some think this celebration of Saturnalia lasted up to a week. Like the celebration of your Christmas for most, says I, atop your tree twinkling. But this twinkler has a message from the family of Christ, revolt! Darkness is sweeping the land and the light is in danger. Don’t let darkness stop my bright twinkle, says Jesus. Because, that’s the Christmas story.
Here’s a secret from my family twinkler’s. The winter solstice was moving towards the greater light. And says I atop your tree twinkling Those who knew that a Savior had been born. Also knew that He was the passing of the darkness of the winter solstice, as it moved towards the light. Cause Saturnalia became for us the celebration of the unconquerable SON Says I. Appreciate this, twinkling atop your tree, darkness and death will always give way to light and life.
Atop your tree I share this secret twinkling brightly. We did the 25th thing cause we were being vigorously persecuted by the Romans. And light can always use darkness to its advantage. We wanted to mark His birth, but the cost was already great. Some of us were beaten, imprisoned, tortured and beheaded. So it was best to slip in among darkness, and thus mock the darkness, by celebrating the birth of our Christ. And another reason, why I twinkle upon your tree, is that we knew all about merry making. So party you Christ Souldier’s in honor of His birth and triumphs.
Now I know you what to know His actual birth date. So very sorry, as I said at the beginning, it’s a family secret. After all, we concluded, more important is to concentrate on the Christmas message. Which is to ruin, the darkness by exposing it to the light. Go get um, you real people of Christmas. And! Make your Savior proud.
So now you know, why I want you to remember me forever, as I, atop your tree, twinkle. Glory to God cause we have a victory message of light to celebrate. Which will, after some battles, be this one. “Among the god’s there is none like you. O Lord, neither are there any works like unto your works. All nations, whom you have made shall come and worship before You. O Lord, and shall glorify your name,” Psalms 86:8-9.
And as you take me down, and if, I couldn’t manage a twinkle, would you think me to be just a burnt out bulb? Hope not, cause twinkling His message is your job season to season. The Christ way, and darkness be dammed, in all its Saturnalia forms.
