Holiday Wishes

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2011, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wish.

I wish I could take credit for the above but I can't.  It's been floating around the internet for some time now and it still doesn't get old.

And for those of you that are okay with the old traditional greeting that I grew up with.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  1. I haven't seen the PC holiday greeting. It made me laugh so thanks for sharing. Happy Holidays to you and your family. Great pic of Hannah, btw.

  2. My first time to your blog. I just noticed that you are now following my blog, and I will being following you now too. I imagine since you make you reference to "Nature Deficit Disorder" that you are familiar with Richard Louv's book "Last Child in the Woods." I'll probably giving away a copy of his book "Fly-Fishing for Sharks" with a contest on my blog sometime in the near future. Glad to have you as a follower, and I look forward to visiting your blog as well.

  3. Merry Christmas to you and yours as well.

    (That Hannah sure looks like a smart girl!)

  4. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.

  5. Merry Christmas to you as well. Hope Hannah gets some nice surprises in that stocking!

  6. Happy Christmas & Merry New Year to you and your family! I liked that one, although I have seen it before also.

  7. Merry Christmas to you and yours, also! Have a safe Holiday Season, eh?

  8. My favorite X-mas post this year, well done.
