Holiday Christmas Madness

Look out Christmas, I'm coming!!!

I wanted to send out some sort of holiday greeting but it is so difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. I met with my attorney today, and on his advice I want to say to all 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 persuasions 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 2003, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make Canada great (not to imply that Canada is necessarily greater than any other country), and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual preference of the wishee.

By accepting this greeting, 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 her/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.

So. . . Best Wishes for the Holiday Season!

Ahhhh bollocks to that load of rot!

Christmas is just over a week away and aside from the decorations in the stores, you'd never know it. The retailers, businesses and media alike all seem to be terrified of the very word Christmas. The drive to be politically correct and inclusive has made Christmas a villain. Everywhere you look and hear it's Happy Holidays, not Merry Christmas. Well not here folks. It's full steam ahead with the Christmas wishes. If you're out in the malls then do what I do. When a well intentioned clerk wishes you Happy Holidays you thanks them and wish them a Merry Christmas. It's to the point where the radio people are conflicted too. One station in out area has been playing Christmas carols since the beginning of the month 24/7. The irony is that they are playing song after song that mention Christmas but the station keeps referring to themselves as the area's "Holiday Station". What the heck is that all about?? I was impressed yesterday when the weekend DJ on the station we have on in the house played a song that sums it all up for me. If you've had your fill of the "Festive Season" and "Holiday Greeting" and are looking for a good old fashioned MERRY CHRISTMAS, then go ahead and click on the play link won't be disappointed.

If you like it that much then it's part of this album, which has a bunch of good stuff on it (yes I like country music, so what?). One of my new favourites. If you get it then check out the Penguin, James Penguin track for an alarming insight into the goings on of Santa. Homeland Security will be wanting to talk to him no doubt.

Somehow I find myself offended by your gesture - most likely due to the fact that you did not include my specific beliefs when issuing said greeting. You'll be hearing from my lawyer.
