Holiday Greetings (or not)!

To All My Democrat Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, 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 2010, 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 wishee.

To My Republican Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

(This was shamelessly stolen from a favorite blog, kmkat, who says it was "Shamelessly stolen from an email from a friend in California".)

I contend that bloggers "glean"; we do not steal The sentiments, however, are also my own.

If it isn't too harsh a statement, and if you don't quite understand my accent, please forgive all that I have said, will say, or will think after I wish you a happy chilly winter's day with or without any secular or spiritual associations.
