FOR ALL MY LIBERAL OR PROGRESSIVE FRIENDS:
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 greatest respect for the religious/secular and/or traditions of others-or their choice of none of the above.
I also wish you a non big-business fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the year 2011 – but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have made America great. (Not to imply that America is necessarily “greater” than any other country nor the only “America” in the hemisphere.)
Wishing you without regard to race, color, creed, age, physical ability, or gender preference a “Happy Season”.
(By accepting these greetings you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It implies no explicit sentiments by the wisher and is void where prohibited by law, or by personal sentiment.)
TO ALL MY CONSERVATIVE FRIENDS:
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, God Bless You & the United States of America!
