Let’s turn the clock back to 1981 to hear the beautiful Christmas address of a president who loved Christ.
Ronald Reagan wasn’t afraid to call Jesus the Christ. He called a Christmas tree a Christmas tree, not a holiday tree. He gave no quarter to the politically-correct Thought Police who want to expunge Christianity from the public square once and for all.

Enjoy this third day of Christmas.
Don’t rush the season. It’s in its early stages!
