Did Prince like Christmas?

I feel like I'm still not fully healed and I just got up off the couch and went to the bathroom to cry. 😞😔😔😢 I still can't believe he's gone and what makes it even harder is when I hear a certain Christmas song that sounds sad, it makes me think of Prince and how I wish he were still here with us. I'm not sure if he liked Christmas or not and I'm not really a fan of it either...but I could only imagine how happy he would have been if he had kids to share this holiday with? I'm sure if he had the family he always wanted, then he would have found true love and happiness with beautiful healthy kids of his own. Him being a father is all he wanted to be. Life is so cruel and it really is heartbreaking to know what he went through while he was alive up until his departure. I hate the thought of how lonely he really was and seeing the videos of his last years here, I could definitely see the sadness and emptiness in his eyes. He was crying inside but we couldn't hear him 😢...This is bitter sweet for me, I just want the holidays to be over with already! How does Christmas feel to you now that you know Prince is no longer here? I wonder if anybody spent the holidays with him? We love you endlessly our beautiful Prince!

from here, somewhere else:

Hey don't you know about the Satan's Claws email from Prince / NPGMusicClub?

I believe it's this one:

>>> Prince is not enjoying the "Christmess", because he belongs to Jehovah now...... eek



'Tis the nightmare called ChristMESS that has the whole earth
Practicing pagan rituals in the name of Christ's birth
The stockings r hung, yet none seem 2 care
The Bible makes no such reference 2 this affair
The children r told of some nice guy in red
While the truth about Santa is Satan instead
And mama passes tradition 2 her kids' little laps
Enabling the origin of ChristMESS 2 remain under wraps
2 lazy 2 research what u've bLIEved since ur youth?
Then sit back and listen while eye tell u the truth...

Away from the lies that r simply rehashed
Eye opened the Bible and threw up, quite aghast
No mention that Jesus was born in December
So, who is it, each year, that the people remember?
O, what 2 my wandering eyes should eye find
But a celebration called Saturnalia - then, further backwards eye
climbed
He bgan a fake religion that competed with God
Eye knew at that moment it was Nimrod!

More rapid my heart beat the blood thru my veins
If Christ was never in ChristMESS, what then remains?
The wreaths, mistletoe, ChristMESS goose and the fixins
ChristMESS trees, gift-giving and holey day mixin
From the whole list there's none u should leave
All pagan in origin, they only dceive

B4 u knew the whole truth, it wasn't a lie
But, now that u know, it's on u 2 deny
Now on2 the icon, of course, u all knew
Bhind that long, flowing beard Santa hid something 2

All eye had was an inkling, so eye went in search of the proof
That Santa was not what eye'd learned in my youth
Eye drew in my breath when the truth hit my eye
Xposed were the roots of this so-called good guy

He's dressed all in red - take note of the hue
And that right there provides the first clue
With a bundle of toyz 2 teach children greed
Walk in2 any toy store and watch him succeed
Y yes, it is true, as the anagram will suggest
SANTA is SATAN, just festively dressed

His wry, little mouth is drawn up in a sneer
As children continue their worship year after year
Upon his mind, do u suppose that it gnaws
The telling morph of his name 2 spell SATAN'S CLAWS?
Yet, the characteristics of God he assumes as his own:
Omniscient, omnipresent - he's after God's throne

He is cunning and wicked, sure no jolly old elf
Now eye cringe when eye c him, no longer kidding myself
This nightmare called ChristMESS - how eye was misled -
In honor of Jesus, upholding Nimrod instead!
Churches ignore this truth tho it lurks
Eye guess appeasing the pagans wins over converts
ChristMESS lies warrant cleanup or else they r liable
2 put one at odds with what's taught in the Bible
Celebr8 how u like - the way u did in ur youth
Or recognize God as a Spirit 2 b worshipped in TRUTH

Eye heard it xclaimed while thru Jeremiah eye was breezin',

"Thus saith the Lord, learn not the way of the heathen."

I was raised to not believe in Santa, The Toothfairy or the Easter Bunny as well. My father before I was born practiced the Rosacrucian faith. but about a decade before I was born, my father left the Rosacrucian faith to embrace Christianity. He told me these same things that Prince describes in this letter and when I became an adult I wanted to find out the "truth" and everything that my father taught me as a child was confirmed with my own research and study.

Jesus is the reason for the season biggrin Prince had a good point calling Santa Satan. I told my son from the beginning that Santa is not real but Jesus is. Now to your question, I don't think Prince liked Christmas for a couple reasons. He was a neglected child living on his own at 13. What did he get for Christmas? Before that , when he was at home, it was abusive. With out good Christmas memories it will just remind you of heartache. Who knows what his Christmases were like. Then as a teen-ager, didn't his girlfriend die on Christmas? Prince might have enjoyed a Christmas with Mayte once.
I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

Yes, Christianity stole all the Pagan holidays and tried to turn them into Christian holidays, that's right.

Think I'd rather have the Paganism than the fucking scum-bucket that is the church. Nothing more than a men's club built to control the masses while feeding its own egos, libidos and bank accounts.

The church can fuck off every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Any denomination.

They basically have nothing to do with God or Jesus. Jesus was a man who said 'love one another', sounds like a pretty great dude. The church? Bickering, fighting, persecuting, murdering and molesting century after century? They can suck it - something they're well accustomed to.

Give me Santa Claus any day of the year, and twice on Christmas.

And don't give me any of that bullshit about 'telling your kids about Santa Claus is lying to them'. There's a difference between lying to your kids and maintaining a healthy belief that there's more to life than meets the eye.

Anyway, Christmas and Santa - good.... Church - bad. Simple.

I put two and two together. I read something in one of those Prince autobiographys about a a girl who passed away that Prince was very close to and I think it said that Susan moonsie had known her also . Then I heard the lyrics to the song Another lonely Christmas, I think Prince is singing about the same girl that I read about in the autobiography. I don't know which book.

Somewhere there was an interview were he stated it was fiction.

Not sure why hed make up a story like that,

maybe he was lonley, was in a relationship that ended near xmas, being artisitc?

What i found on the org..

prince himself answered this question back in 1998 or 1999 on the
love4oneanother.com questionair.

he said it was a complete work of fiction, not about anyone real.

Yes, true. But, he said that the day you are born is your "Birthday".

And, he did not believe in time. He said time was a mind-construct. biggrin

Oddly, one of his songs on the Piano and Microphone tour was Linus and Lucy (which was introduced orginally on the CHarlie Brown Christmas Special. ) I am not sure in what context this song was performed though.

Maybe, he lightened up about this subject. AFter all, his CHristian buddies like Hannah and Josh Welton probably definitely celebrated Christmas.

SANTA is SATAN, just festively dressed

His wry, little mouth is drawn up in a sneer
As children continue their worship year after year
Upon his mind, do u suppose that it gnaws
The telling morph of his name 2 spell SATAN'S CLAWS?
Yet, the characteristics of God he assumes as his own:
Omniscient, omnipresent - he's after God's throne

He is cunning and wicked, sure no jolly old elf
Now eye cringe when eye c him, no longer kidding myself
This nightmare called ChristMESS - how eye was misled -
In honor of Jesus, upholding Nimrod instead!
Churches ignore this truth tho it lurks
Eye guess appeasing the pagans wins over converts
ChristMESS lies warrant cleanup or else they r liable
2 put one at odds with what's taught in the Bible
Celebr8 how u like - the way u did in ur youth
Or recognize God as a Spirit 2 b worshipped in TRUTH

Eye heard it xclaimed while thru Jeremiah eye was breezin',

"Thus saith the Lord, learn not the way of the heathen."

<<This is bitter sweet for me, I just want the holidays to be over with already!>>

I listened to Another Lonely Christmas, and kinda had some of the same thoughts and questions. Yet, he went out of his way to record a song that mentioned Christmas, so it was enough for inspiration. I'm betting he spent the holly jolly holiday working on the next great song!

God Bless U Prince! pray
