For my Liberal friends: (If I have any...) “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 upcoming and generally accepted calendar year 2013, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures (sorry Mayans) whose contributions to society have helped make America exceptionally great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country in the Western Hemisphere, here on Earth or in the entire universe for that matter. And without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishes to the recipent. By accepting these greetings you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for herself or himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.” And for my Conservative friends: “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!” May God bless you and your's in this fugacious moment of sanity!
