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.
