Summary At a time when Christian values are challenged-when the greeting "Merry Christmas" has been replaced by the supposedly less offensive "Happy Holidays"-Governor Sarah Palin makes the case for bringing back the freedom to express the religious spirit of the season. In Good Tidings and Great Joy, she discusses one of Christianity's most sacred celebrations, and how the holiday has been robbed of its meaning and true tradition by the pressures of political correctness. Palin defends the importance of preserving Jesus Christ in Christmas-whether in public displays, school concerts, and pageants, or in our hearts-and delivers a sharp rebuke to today's society for the homogenization of the holiday season. Sharing personal memories from Christmases during her childhood, she illustrates why she holds the celebration of Jesus Christ's Nativity so dear. Good Tidings and Great Joy revisits our traditional roots and the true meaning of Christmas. It is a call to action to readers to defend and openly celebrate the joys of their Christianity, and to say to one another, "Merry Christmas!"
