Church is Closed For Christmas?

For all those churches that feel worshipping Jesus and celebrating His birth cannot be done together, here's a parody of I'll Be Home For Christmas:

Church is closed for Christmas
We're not meeting here
Some are home, some alone
And Pastor's drinking beer
Christmas eve I'm shopping
And buying one more toy
But church is closed for Christmas
Sorry, Savior-Boy

(2nd verse)
Church is closed for Christmas
We're not meeting here
Some are home, some alone
And Pastor's drinking beer
Sunday's when we worship
Christmas is for Christ
But not when they're together
That is party night!

Any of you who go to a church that closed for Christmas- you need a church that celebrates Jesus no matter what is going on. If you are celebrating Christmas as the recognition of Jesus' birth, how on earth can you ignore a gathering to worship Him on that same day?! Please, anyone who agrees with closing churches for Christmas, do not tell me to keep the "Christ" in Christmas or argue against "Happy Holidays." You cut Christ out of Christmas when you make Christmas a "family day" and forget that Jesus wants us devoted to Him more than even our families. See Abraham and Isaac in the OT and consider the following:
If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple. (Luke 14.26 NASB)
