Socially correct Seasons Greeting - to you all

From me "the wishor" to you "the wishee," please accept without obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally responsible, socially conscious, energy efficient, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of a 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, I wish you a financially successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2006, but with due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures or sects, and having regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform or sexual preference of the wishee. By accepting this greeting you are bound by these terms:
This greeting is subject to further clarification or withdrawal.

An a very politically correct wish for a perfectly delightful time designated to celebrate any deity or entity of your choice in, around, on, or during the period of time from twelve days prior to the date many observe as a special day to twelve days thereafter said particular special date. And may you have an especially happy, preferably prosperous 365 days following said special date as well!

Just wondering Vic, after reading your piece, are you planning to go into politics? With the wording of your message, sure could make a good person to do the "double-talk" so often used, especially here in the States by members of all political parties. None are excluded in their ability to do that!
