In the festive spirit of the holiday...

To some of you:

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 2019, 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 the rest of you:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
“Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.” Douglas Adams

Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor in the future shall any of us cease to be.

We've done the airing of gifts and exchanges of grievances here, so Happy Hollandaise to those enjoying their eggs Benedict served on a hubcap.
There's no plate like chrome for the Hollandaise.

I'll believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.

mpholland I did not read your epic...

...but I hope that it is appropriate anyway to wish everybody in this forum a Happy New Year!

Perfectly appropriate, HK.

Holland's epic is an overly-elaborate way of saying "Bah! Humbug!" to anyone who cares about others, but dares to see cultural lines as a tad bit arbitrary and relative.
If things don't go right, go left!
