TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND/OR ENEMIES
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/secular traditions at all……and a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make North America great (not to imply that North America is necessarily greater than any other continent or is the only “America” in the western hemisphere), and without regard to race, creed, colour (or “color” should you choose to spell it that way), age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual orientation of the wishee.
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 be, nor shall it be considered to be, 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).
By accepting this greeting, you are accepting that:
a) it is subject to clarification or withdrawal with or without the required notice, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wishee at any time, for any reason or for no reason at all;
b) it is freely transferable with no alteration to the original;
c) it implies no promise by me to actually implement any of the wishes for the wishee herself/himself or others , or responsibility for the consequences which may arise from the acceptance/implementation/action in support of or non-acceptance/non-implementation/non-action in support of the same; and,
d) it is null and void where permitted or prohibited by law.
Thanks Bob A.
