Friends and colleagues,
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 persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all…and a financially successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make Britain great (not to imply that Britain is necessarily greater than any other country or area of choice, and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual orientation of the wisher).
This wish is limited to the customary and usual good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first. “Holiday” is not intended to, nor shall it be considered, limited to the usual Judeo-Christian celebrations or observances, or to such activities of any organized or ad hoc religious community, group, individual, or belief (or lack thereof).
Note: By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher at any time, for any reason or for no reason at all. This greeting is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. This greeting implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for the wisher her/himself or others, or responsibility for the consequences which may arise from the implementation or non-implementation of same. This greeting is void where prohibited by law.
Yes, well, Merry Christmas anyway. Hope you had a good day. I didn’t have too bad a day, actually. Got money and chocolate this year, which is fine enough. 😉
Watched The Snowman again today – as I do every year. Brought a bit of a tear to my eye as I thought about my lost childhood… *sigh* At times, I feel old, even though the best/worst/whatever is still to come…
Also watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone tonight, which I hadn’t seen since December 2001 when I saw it at the cinema – it introduced me to the Harry Potter series of books and films. Before then, my brother had read all the books and so on, but I thought it was just some kiddie rubbish… then I saw the film, and it made me want to read the books. So I did. And the rest as they say were history. Until I saw “Fellowship of the Ring”, of course… I then read those books, and saw those movies, and argued with Ken as to whether it’s one book or three, and whatnot. Yes.
Anyway, got some stuff to do just now, so I’ll just wish you a safe after-Christmas and a happy new year!
