It's Christmas 2000 more. The giant like dip stick topics you don't want a romantic Christmas carols and Christmas trees. Banning all things Christmas and all colors residents. There is no how brave and noble man that America. There radio. Six variance. Medics millions of. An evening Boston it is December 21. 2014. The Christmas episode episode now. Of the running data show 6172666868. Is the number to call and participate. Have they walk. To get through tonight an awful lot. To get to tonight everyone I want to thank you so much for joining me this evening I wanna thank you so much for tuning in for gathering around your radios. If this is a very very very somber. Night. Not when I finished my show last week. And I was driving home. I thought about job are wonderful caller Jones call and when I got home I started thinking right away about what I wanted to do tonight. And when I was thinking of about exactly what to do. The idea that you it was just so obvious to me why don't you do a great big old Christmas show. Where you know you've got a you've got a custom Christmas opener you've got Christmas Day it's coming in and out of every break. You've got nothing but discussion of all things Christmas. You know listener participation to call Lynn talk about your favorite Christmas memories favorite Christmas toys favorite Christmas traditions. And I thought it would be to such a wonderful wonderful idea. Because for the entire month of December all of us all of us our ability to maintain. Our Christmas spirit. Has been thoroughly tested. Thoroughly tested by report after report. Of children being denied Christmas in school report after report. Of school officials college officials. Banning anything related to Christmas Day getting the word Christmas Day getting ready in green I in their schools and on college campuses. Happy holidays this happy holidays that. An endless. Bombardment campaign by the united atheists leak in their billboards. Rye yeah you're right it's about Ferguson. And Eric garner angry protests all over the country screaming for the death of police. Screaming screaming for just a screaming blocking traffic. Numerous arrests nothing but violence. And I thought to myself what a great idea it would be. Ted Ted Ted tough fight all of this to fight all of this in our own special way. By gathering tonight for an extra special Christmas show. But as all of you know things have taken a very very dark turn. This weekend. Two police officers in New York have been brutally. Viciously deliberately. Targeted and assassinated. Officer way engine blew an officer Rafael Ramos. Were simply sitting in their police crews are doing their job outside of a Brooklyn. Housing development. When a gunman walked up to them. And assassinated them. No warning. No nothing. Of course as reports come then it seems that he gave plenty of warning on social media. But now be sue police officers. Are dead. And just a few days before Christmas. Their families and all the people that love them. Far without them and I what you think for just a moment. While all of us in our day to day life are struggling to celebrate Christmas as it is. But think about think about how these fallen officers' families feel. And then in Florida. Tough third officer. Responding to a call. Shot and killed by apparently eight transient. Person. A transient person who had a gun in a car. I don't know how you can label that person as a transient. If they have a gun and a car. But that that that job. That Florida officer had five kids folks. Five children. That are without their father tonight. There's no way there's no way I thought about this the whole drive then. I said god you know please give me the strength. To say what needs to be said. To save the right things. To say something that has some kind of healing benefit. But I'm angry like you're angry. I'm fearful for the future of this country like your fearful. For the future of this country. And I am determined to celebrate Christmas tonight don't get me wrong we are going to celebrate Christmas. But it felt completely irresponsible. On my part. To not address this before we move on to our Christmas celebrations. I know that for a lot of view you know your hearts are very heavy just like my heart is heavy. And I want you to call Lynn and share those feelings at 6172666868. I have several questions for you. Regarding these assassinations. Of our brave men and women. I wanna ask you if this current progressive driven climate. Of protests of slogans of screaming. Do you feel that Reverend Al Sharpton. Is responsible to some degree. Do you feel that all of these civil rights leaders that have ginned up all of this animosity. Do you feel that they bear some responsibility in this. I wanna know what you think. But I'll tell you what I think. I think that this is a terrible sad sad day in America. This is a terribly sad day. And like I said you know all week long. I can't tell you how many hours I spent in the studio recording Christmas spirits. Laughing and saying oh my god I can't wait I can't wait for the audience of the running David show. To hear all this Christmas stuff and tidy up my Christmas cells right here just got all of it right here. And this is what happened this weekend. And it just felt so irresponsible. To jump right into a Merry Christmas everyone. With so much we will with such heartbreak with such senseless loss. And I know that it would have felt equally empty to all of you. And like I said. We are going to celebrate Christmas tonight. For every police officer in this country. The Ronnie David show wants you to know that every member of this audience is with UN mourning tonight. But I want to ask all of you. Do you feel build it to block CO the mayor of New York do you feel he bears some responsibility. Do you feel Al Sharpton bear some responsibility. Last week I played you that insightful that hate insightful speech by reverend Jamal Bryant. Claiming that that Black America is a victim. A victim of Republicans in the Coke Brothers and a psychotic. Police force. Do you feel that this rhetoric has contributed to this climate. I tend to think it has. And one of the things that strikes me so much. Is that when. Louis gates refused to just give the police officers in Cambridge simple information to clear up that he was the owner of of his apartment. Those police officers were doing their job protecting his property. And President Obama wasted no time. Addressing the nation. When George Zimmerman a night watchman. Just innocently. Observing someone that looks suspicious to him tray Von Marten who he never spoke to. Never addressed never confronted. Never approached. Just simply observed him and when he lost sight of them headed back to his vehicle we're trade on Martin doubled back. And assaulted him. President Obama wasted no time. No time addressing the nation. When Michael Brown walked into a convenience store. And stole. On video camera. Assaulted the Indian store owner Pakistani store open bar owner on camera. And then moments later walked right down the middle of the street with stolen merchandise like he just didn't care. And along came officer Darren Wilson. Who asked him to move to the side of the road. A fight broke out. A fight initiated by Michael Brown. And tragically Michael Brown lost his life. For those decisions and President Obama wasted no time addressing the nation. And the same goes for Eric garner. Whereas President Obama tonight. For these two assassinated police officers and a third officer killed in Florida. Whereas President Obama. Where is Eric Holder. Whereas Al Sharpton. Where is Louis Farrakhan. Where it's Tavis Smiley. Where is reverend Jamal Bryant. Where are today. Maybe they're Christmas shopping. 617266. 6868. Is the phone number. I M I'll I'll say right now I am leaning and depending on all of you tonight. On every single one of you tonight. My heart is breaking. For the families of those officers. But my heart in my mind are also thinking something else. If this radical. Leftist. Ideology. Has spread to this kind of a degree with this kind of consequences. It's not the Tea Party out in the street everyone. It's not a conservative super pac out in the streets every one. It's not a Republican super pac threatening the lives of police officers and interfering with everyone else's life. That's just trying to go to work just trying to celebrate a happy and Merry Christmas. This is an exclusively. Progressive driven phenomenon and there's no getting around it. And it's disgraceful. And it's disgraceful and tonight on the runny David show we're all gonna take a stand against it. And it's hard is it may be. We're gonna get through this I'm going to get through all of your calls I'm going to let you vent your frustration. You're hurt your anger and then dammit we are going to celebrate Christmas. For the families of when Jin Lu Rafael Ramos. And Charles Conn dec. For those officers. For every officer in America grieving for their loss. And for all of their family members we will find a way tonight to celebrate Christmas. As if all of the anti Christmas nonsense wasn't bad enough. I mean that's what I wanted to show to be a remedy a remedy for all of the antique Christmas bullying. For all the anti Christmas choke holding. For all of the icty Christmas everything. That would have to put up with this entire month of December. What we're all just trying to be without our families. While we're all just trying to celebrate the single greatest holiday ever. 617. 2666868. Is the phone number. Let's go to Linda.

Is the number that of course was audio. Of teenage Christmas Carol is now being told that law enforcement would be involved if they didn't stop. Singing Christmas carols which they were forced to do. A clarification. If I hadn't clarified this in the first segment. The the shooting death. In Florida. And the shooting deaths of two police officers in New York are on related. I just to clarify that two different shooters are different sets of circumstances. But tragically. We have three. Of our rock of our bravest. Gone this evening and their families in god only knows what kind of morning. I just before Christmas it's terrible. I would like to get back to the phones Mike I want to thank you for calling into the runny David showed tonight Europe next go right ahead. Yeah I find that very responsible. And disrespectful. The trawler. Should be. So we get unleashed. Battery hee-seop assists. What the app poster respectable dignity. That it is sure. Because of their heroism that they portrayed everybody's going to work coming over like it you know. And that last call at saint Barbara somebody's shin on national joke immediate solution.

Well just bear with it if bear with me for a second don't hang up just jab Mike did we lose and did we lose a match. Yeah I you know it's just. All opinions are welcome like I always say but. If you're going to make an accusation like that Mike I think you at least deserve our meet the courtesy of staying on the line to respond art to you. I do not feel that anything I said in my opening segment was undignified at all. Undignified at all I I think that what I said was what a great number of people are thinking and I did not assert I did not assert. That blood is on this person's hands are blotter this person's hands of that person's sense I asked a common sense question Mike. Where are where are the same government officials where is our president where are these civil rights activists now where are very. We heard so much from month. Over the past four weeks six weeks eight weeks and where are they and I think that that's a fair question to ask Mike I don't feel. That that's disrespectful at all. I really don't and I and I can tell you this right now I I'm sorry if that's how you took my opening segment. But I I didn't come into the studio with with anything but respect. For those officers and their families nothing but empathy. For what their families must be going through I guess you just didn't hear that part might may be in your anger. Maybe you just didn't hear that. But look all opinions are welcome. That'll be true as much tonight as every other Sunday night and I do thank you for the call Mike I've always enjoyed your calls your regular caller here at WRKO. And I really do appreciate your input even if it is to disagree. We will continue this discussion right after this break right here on the runny David show everybody up on the board don't go anywhere I'll get to you next.

Around the United States because you went there yeah. Anyway. Your board always fun to come in June and this is your opportunity to draw I think we have an answer knowing who gets resonance. I'm more offended. We are offended. That you would take Christmas away from us. Anything else happening. But how they're using crystal clear way you're my minutes are about inspired his include. And welcome back to the Ronnie David show the runny David Christmas show. Right here at Boston's talk station AM 680 WRKO. The time is 835. Hank before I get TU ally see you up there to just give me 12. Mike called Barack. I went into the back room to try and talk with a but he is so incredibly angry and I will put it out to any of Utah and are waiting on hold right now I. The last thing I ever wanna do when I get behind this Mike on is the AA barn burner. You know that's the last thing I ever wanted to do I felt that my opening address showed nothing but temperance and respect. For these fallen officers and their families I think what's wrong with Mike I think Mike is so upset Mike's a very. Mike's a very mercurial kinda guy anyway any view that listened so WRKO regularly of her plenty of Mike's calls and it's very touching go with Mike. It's really hard sometimes to figure out what's gonna set him off. But I think that Mike is so hurt and angry this evening about. The state of developments in our country culminating. With these tragic deaths over the weekend that I think Mike just wanted to call living yell at the very first person he could. And it turned out to be me Ronnie David are no harm no foul with that made him feel better. That's great but I wanna get too while I wanna get some more calls are from people that have been patiently waiting. Hank I wanna thank you so much for calling in to the runny David showed tonight please what's on your mind. Right I'm running out we don't what are we talk military before everything's on my mind. I did that respect to all law enforcement firefighters military. In the poor people to getting slaughtered raped and it has got to cut out across the world this is a major. Major world Croatia's should should not change to get people better wake up because. I agree with you by the way thank god please you'll love all the time you need that yes I agree with you criminal. Old world. Are you won't you know just 12 Hank let me interrupt for 12 and then I'll let you finish with a all the time you need. What what scares me so much about this tank is what I think is scaring so many people in America. That that if these individuals. These leftist you know individuals are so committed. To their ideology. That they'll just walk right up to two armed police officers and do this what kind of chance do you think that is that that leads regular people like human night. Exactly but see the thing is unless I miss sixty years old I was around in the sixties. I've probably got killed in Vietnam stepbrother sorry yeah yeah I I know what's going on I. The condition this second generation of the Weather Underground on steroids where the checkbook. In the power of the courts. This is the problem because they have taken the country if people don't know what the Weather Underground and Billy yes it is because he's a drones of that Barack. And then knocked down or stop. The worst is yet that term the next two years are going to be to worsen dangerous she is an exchange based apparently the history of this country. We waited for very diet diet turn to people don't understand. What these people are and what daily what they retention. And what they've goals. You know hey this is exactly why I wanted to have a Christmas show tonight you know where for two hours we could just look the world decide. And just laugh and be married and enjoy the Christmas spirit. That that the climate of this country just keeps denying to us and our children at every turn you know. And and then over the weekend it it it yeah and I think you're right I think over the next I think it's gonna get a lot worse before it's Kodak. It's gonna get ten times worse then that this is what they want. They create a crisis after crisis after crisis these are all created orchestrated. I mean that's the thing with a gracious thing at target. The woman did and Askgreta get the epidemic show wanted to bring up the show. Can be militia worker CNBC. Give me a break collection and no that was staged. Don't state these distant CEO of sorely pitches. Was one of the biggest emotional armor and ball collections. You know it's funny you mention North Korea Hank maybe I should have checked with Kim Jung owed on what I could talk about tonight you know a lot of pay Hank I've got a hold you dear we've got a lot of people on the board but I want to wish you a merry Merry Christmas and ducked and thank you so much for the call. What are sure sure glad we got a battery that copy the outcropping served time in slop. Information because I'm into like you are well guess earlier launch sometime in real you know talks. There's really bad things covered thoroughbred tumbling want to go. Well Hank I couldn't agree with you more and it's it's not it's there it's the biggest biggest reason on that drew an extremely private person like me. Out from my quiet life in here behind the microphone with a all of you because I I hate it that the truth of your call resonates with me. And I think it deeply resonates with a lot of callers. To Hank that. That that something is happening something is happening on the that there is an ideology there is a belief. That is spreading through our country like a virus it is swallowing the Democrat party it is swallowing the Republican Party it's swallowing all of our institutions and holidays. And now tragically. It's swallow when our our finest finest men and women on Al I wanna thank you for being so patient. And Europe next on the runny David Cho thank you so much for the call brother. All Tyrod Merry Christmas to you all hate. Thank you so much for taking my call. Hey real quick out before you say anything. It did it is it is is quite you've heard I you've heard salty might make a million calls and to talk radio was he right was my was my opening monologue a disrespect. Absolutely no reason not an end and and don't get me wrong I love I love my you know my you know we. You know Mike and I have had personal interactions you know we. Save your PSA hereof met him before yeah I just think he's so angry tonight now he's just got to directed somewhere. And I and I and I think you're right and again you know what god bless you Mike. You know when we all love you so armed before and I also want to say on behalf of the inner circle Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones. Oh thank you so much out thank you so much. Take just to piggyback on Linda call earlier. Did you see the reaction of the New York police department when the Bellagio was walking past them to get to this press conference. Yes they all turn their back garden. They turned their backs on that liberal puke who does nothing but disparage their importance. Does nothing but make them his personal tax collectors which led to the whole Erica artist situation to begin with the and to that I say good for them and god bless them. I agree with everything that you said thus far and lastly I will say. That there is blood on many people's hands and build the Bellagio is cheap amongst them as always you're doing a phenomenal job and keep fighting the good fight my brother got question. Hey god bless you Allan thank you so much for the call it you know like I said you know the drive in tonight. The drive in tonight it was a very peculiar drive and because I was so excited for all the Christmas treats and goodies and debts and fund. You know as a release as a release for all of this anti Christmas entry to anti traditional American values that. That's just been suffocating all of us and only getting worse every Christmas season and I thought that they show would be a wonderful. Are gathering placed all celebrate and be happy. And later on in the second hour of the show. All I'm going to talk about is Christmas and my favorite memories. Of Christmas and I've got a surprise special guest that'll be calling into. Todd has some very special perspective to offer. Armed but I just felt it would be dishonest to just pretend that this. The at least three awful tragedies to just pretend like they don't exist in just get right behind the microphone. Screaming Merry Christmas and talking about cakes and cookies and and candies I I I really felt. That that this needed to be addressed and that before we can all laugh you know and and that's what I'm saying I wanna dedicate. All all of the Christmas talked tonight. All of the celebration of all we love you know dedicate to the families. To the families of these fallen officers and I know that compared to how they must be feeling. That you that that must it must sound like an empty gesture and maybe just some of you out there that sounds like an empty gesture. But as Americans who care and love this country and appreciate our law enforcement appreciate our military. From where I'm sitting right now behind this microphone it's a very best that I can do. And that's what I am that's what I'm going to do tonight the very best that I can do. To tell it to celebrate Christmas to celebrate this wonderful time of year the best holiday ever. While at the same time are praying. Are praying for our fellow Americans that are in so much pain and grief tonight. We're gonna get right back tier phone calls right in icu what their video I see what their. Everyone's gonna have a chance to say everything they want right here on the runny David should stay tuned.

For the sake of our fellow Americans that are without their loved ones tonight. I do to these awful awful police shootings offer them we are going to celebrate Christmas and and celebrated the way we remember it. What we were kids and that is going to start. Right out of the gate I have a special I'd guessed for all of you I would doubt like all the view to us say hello. To my mom. I'm going to call this section RPM. Or Ronnie is progressive mama. I'm wrong we need. US and let me. Mother are you think are you there are bother. You aren't aren't involved mom you know he did think I could have you want without doing something a little extra. Extra special for you month everyone please say hello to my mom. And it's real interesting to have my mom on. My mom agrees with very little that we think can say. You're on the Ronnie David show on my mom is a loud and proud progressive loves Elizabeth Warren loves Obama. I'm but what makes my mom different. Is that you know I ate I mean without art you know we've got a couple pretty good political fights mom but I've got to say you know like yeah I mean your nodded in your face zealot. You know my mom's not like that at all but the reason I wanted to have you won mom is that you and dad. Have given given us kids are on the oldest of four mom you have given us just some of the the most beautiful Christmas is ever. And it's so true and I I wanted to ask you tonight mom being on the other side of VIL. I'm you know what when we were kids you could have Christmas parties in schools you you insisted that we war are nice clothes to school and you know Ed and since you know that that the climate now mom. Is it just seems like this relentless war against Christmas you see the Christmas I specials disappearing from TV. Stations you see. You know there's no more Santa updates on the news about where Santa is in the sky. The stores are abandoning the word Christmas they're forbidding their cashier's is public policy to say Merry Christmas. You know they did these kids all throughout all our elementary schools there's no more Christmas parties now mom you know what. What's going on mob why do you think that is. I really don't know I I mean everything has become so secular. But you know I'm a Christian progressives and Christmas is a Christian holidays there's just no denying that and you mentioned store clerks than last year. I was an it department store and I said Merry Christmas to the clerk when she was stunned ringing out my things. And I could see she wanted to respond in kind but couldn't. And you know that's quite dad died. Those of us to believe. It's just have to go why believing more shed any light sockets out of it I mean if local ordinances say you can have nativity scenes that. Public buildings are whatever you know scriptures that is rendered its heyday of the things that are caesar's and to god the things that are kind. So we have to Obey what these ordinances are but we still have freedom of speech. So anyone is free to put in nativity scene on their front line that's that's what they wish to do that. That's constitutionally. Guaranteed it is freedom of speech and I just dumping Christians should change the way. They do things this bizarre thing Christmas bazaar. Holiday we reiterate it did he is the birth of Christ for Iraq. And nothing should be able to change that I don't care anymore and out believes when I believe I believe it. I would think your recruitment to. My friends I eat you know I know you're not gonna say Merry Christmas to it would Jewish parents say it would be insulting. You wouldn't say Merry Christmas to mudslides and hate they don't believe it would be insulting. I'd. You know Merry Christmas to me means. Have a great celebration of the birth of Christ and that's how I feel. And this is why I really wanted to have you won mom because I think a lot of my listeners feel. Bomb that that it's almost an exclusively. It that this is almost exclusively driven from the progressive side of the idol. This this this spin on Christmas you know like the saying. That you know that not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims you know people kind of see the same thing with Christmas mom that. You know that not all progressives are atheists but all atheists almost always seem. To be progressives that the that the one parent complaining about Christmas at school is almost always a progressive Democrat. The about marsh field public workers putting up a Merry Christmas signed before that was pulled down all of you know end. I mean. It's not a myth mom because it really does seem that that a lot of this anti Christmas sentiment. Seems to be generated from the progressive side of the island yet. You know I don't mean you're as progressive as they get mom and and you don't feel that way at all why why that disconnect on the progressive side of the aisle do you think. Forty think that audio or do you think that on your debt it's not like a progressive think. You know I don't really outdated. Art atheists progresses. Primarily I don't know. But I do know what I think and believe and I believe in Christ and I believe president. Celebrate the birth of Christ. And you know I heard the argument made that you know Christmas actually take place on a pagan holiday. And apparently that's true I know it story and I'm no expert but. Apparently. Emperor Constantine wanted to. Create a holiday to celebrate the birth of Christ it was a Christian convert. And she wanted his people to become Christian convert and so. He chose the pagan holidays. To kind of bombed. Jerod and man I gas and many historians out there please please feel free to correct me but that's my understanding. So the argument really is bogus because. The holiday was created his celebrate the birth of Christ in a court Christ's birthday we don't know what Matt Wise. I I think got you mom I think the listeners would love to know you know I'm one of four what what will we like what with a four of us like on Christmas as kids. It worked great. And you were. Just keep it to where we were kids mom if you get in so when I was a teenager in my early twenties all news to drop something on our. I you sleep very grateful. Fur or whatever you got hands. Your brother always took apart is Christmas to get hit the other works. Everything did the where everything right. Everything. And food you want it whereas you know certain things start to cabbage patch doll do you wanted to tell that story is terrible all. All very very quickly mum please do yup we. I had a cabbage patch doll they were all the rage and couldn't find YC yeah how has been located one. I had an Italian American club in Boston and it was going for a 125. Dollars which lies. Big big money at the time I don't think it'd. Side. Your father one enterprise than any picked up this style unfortunately she had all Italian adoption papers and is the pride in hated the doll. This. So and a month later I want not already aired America. Cabbage patch kid him about that initiated that'd. And that was the end of it so the dark just got kicked around. Well mom I'm so glad that you have the time to call in tonight and I'm so glad that the audience got a chance to want to hear you would say hello to you thank you so much mom and I just want you to know before you hang up just how much I love you and just how grateful I am for the incredible Christmas is.

Hey that was my mom every 1617. 2666868. Is the phone number how long before we go to break it drives in time to talk Christmas a little bit here. I'll awesome up got five minutes. Christmas Christmas Christmas I'm sick of people ruining Christmas for everybody this tiny minority of people. Just ruining Christmas for everybody dragging their ideological boots all over the single greatest holiday ever. I mean yeah at what point did it I mean I had Christmas parties when I was a kid going to school and they were the most wonderful wonderful wonderful events ever. They were the best events ever and like I did so with my mom the first thing you did which you wore your best clothes were at and I'm talking like third grade fourth grade. Fifth grade. About that age you wore your best clothes whatever you felt you are best clothes you wore your favorite shirt your favorite shoes your favorite sneakers. And you got to decorate the whole school. In Christmas decorations you got to make those red and green construction paper chains right. You got to put up the big giant CNN stuff all over school and the entire school was filled. With nothing but Christmas and then you got to decorate your classroom Christmas tree where you got to make the ornaments you self. Or you got to bring the men and you decorate the whole Christmas tree with ornaments and then it will we did anyway. Down on the South Shore is that the whale worked was everybody wrote their name on a piece of paper and deported into what hack and then everybody drew names. And whatever name you got there was like a five dollar limit on a gift that you could get him. You know so was really cool to find out you know like there and it was always the girls that had to know. To which you cat what they can't where they get who they get everyone had to know who everybody got and people would do the private swaps like if they got. The name of somebody that they don't like you you know you'd look for somebody else to trade names with. To get a name of somebody you know that you could live with. And we had so much fun and then all my god forget it the whole elementary school filled with the smell of cookies. And cakes and pastries. And all of these wonderful things and then the kids that were really good at singing. You know there was always that small group of kids that even as kids they you know they they were out front and as performers. And they would sing beautiful Christmas carols. Which sing beautiful Christmas carols with that the teacher would read awesome Christmas stories. The classrooms would be covered with lights you could leave the classroom and go and everybody else's classroom. I mean it was the best time ever. And how it's all gone. And now it's all gone and look I'm only 45. I'm only 45 I mean I'm not battled it wasn't that long ago. And yet now all of that is gone because somehow schools that are without all of back. Somehow school is better without Christmas. All these wonderful incredible things that I know a lot of you experience to an elementary school and for it and and somehow. These progressive. Educational zealots feel that now that that's its big kids have more fun without all of that. I mean isn't it knots. And here's one of the things that I would love to point out. To anyone I hope they're listening that's a devout progressive atheist that celebrates. Every single year that this know Christmas in school. I want you to think about the poor kids that you went to elementary school with. The port kids whose parents couldn't afford retreat. The poor kids whose parents couldn't afford presents the Christmas party at school was their Christmas. There was this Christmas so even though really really poor kids. Got to enjoy Christmas got to eat cookies and cakes got to sing Christmas Carol's got to decorate your tree got to decorate the school. Had a gift waiting for them under the tree at school. So even the poorest kids that you went to school with got to experience Christmas at school if god forbid their parents would just to pour. To be able to give them the kind of Christmas that they wanted to give them at home. We have got calls for waited on the board of people that wanna share their Christmas stories it's make in my heart swell I'm so happy to see Bryan up there.

You know putting on my nicest clothes are going to love my elementary school Christmas parties and just what it what a shame. What a shame. That today's children. Are deprived of that incredible joy. Of coming to school and celebrating Christmas I mean like when I was a kid. I remember distinctly that there was a Communist. Family pay I I went to school with a kid whose father was a real devout Communist always elements agreement. And you know they gave his son and excused absence for the day and that's what they do for someone of a different religion you could either you know celebrate with a everybody.

As a kid but I wanna know what all you are special favorite memories aren't favored special things. You know I'll share a real quick Christmas story with you and then open it up to the phones again. I have a younger Brothers Steve. And like my mother said when she called in earlier. Steve Steve would enjoy every Christmas present. For alike may be a few hours before you had. To take it apart in fact I think one of his Christmas presents that he wanted with screwdrivers and pliers and everything to help them better take apart. His Kristi is Christmas presents like remember that big track. It kind of look like a space futuristic tank and you could program men how far forward you wanted it to go and then writer left to whatever. I mean he enjoyed it for I don't know how long before he had to take it apart and find out how what worked and sometimes he could put it together and sometimes he couldn't. But stay with my brother one Christmas I want to save my brother was about seven or eight. But he had just made it up in his mind that he was going to meet the real Santa Claus no matter what. So here's what he hears what he did. He decided to set up an elaborate array of trip wires around our family Christmas tree and we had a big old green chair. Right near the Christmas tree that he decided he was gonna sleep behind so he took a bunch of fishing line. And tied little cans and bells and anything that he could and all around the Christmas tree was this big elaborate network of trip wires. And so he slept behind the tree. With a all of this stuff tied to his leg so if anyone pulled on it not only would you hear all the stuff. But it would pull a need and he had one of those little Polaroid Cameras ready to snap a picture of Santa. Any finally went to sleep. Determined. That he was gonna catch CNET in the act and have a chance to meet soon after. Here's what happened. My brother woke up in the morning. All the trip wires were left completely on disturbed. All of the president's worst act under the tree around all the trip wires. And as a tradition we left out a glass of milk and some cookies. Every Christmas Eve percent to. So in the morning. None of the trip wires disturbed all the presents under the tree. The milk drank the cookies eaten and a little note on the empty plate that said nice try kid loves Santa. And I will never ever ever forget that. I'll never forget how hard I laughed and I'll never forget. My Brothers ingenuity and how angry that he was that he got. Outsmarted. By say Erica but before I share anymore my own personal stories are really wanna get to yours.
