Why not wish everybody a Merry Christmas?

Because "everyone" out there isn't celebrating Christmas- some people are
celebrating Kwanza, Chanukah, solstice, etc...   It was thoughtful that he
gave an all-inclusive, "Happy Holidays!" on the internet, where not everyone
shares the same beliefs.  Not that there's anything wrong with just saying,
"Merry Christmas!" :).~Bethany, who's celebrating Christmas...

'Taint the only holiday going, that's why. Christmas for some, solstice or
yule for others, Hanakah for others, Kwanza... I'm sure there are more, if
I were to ask a wider diversity of people.

And of course, the calendrical holiday of New Year's eve/day, which follow
Christmas by a week.

Thus, the plural.

Even our "Christmas" celebration as practiced today has much of the
ecclectic mix to it: "Christmas" trees are really solstice trees. "Santa
Claus" is certainly associated with pagan practices in N. Europe, as is the
yule log. The whole thing with lights is associated with many and varied
cultures' solstice celebrations. All fine with me: nothing wrong with being
inclusive.

What bugs me is that much of this has become the economic holiday "Cashmas"
which involves binge-spending of the most ridiculous nature. Can't forget
that one in this country, eh? That one kind of threatens to put me off the
whole season...

Personally, I'm all done with my big December party: the tamale wrap
session. That takes only 6 or 7 guests, the husks, the dough, the fillings
-- and you wind up with hundreds of tamales to split up at the end of it
all. That was a bit over two weeks ago.

I'm considering creating a new holiday which involves decking the halls
with the new Garden catalogs which keep on arriving. I tell you, I'm
starting to get antsy to order more seeds and plants. I can hardly wait to
be gardening again. Right now, it's just drooling over the catalogs...

Next year at this time, I'll have a cold frame, I reckon.

Lest I forget, Merry Christmas, Jim.

And a happy New Year.

Regards,
Bill

We try to celebrate as many as we can  .... it extends the season and of
course, the lights chase away the demons of darkness up here in the now
very frozen tundra. Ingrid

Try to be nice and change a negative response to Jim to a positive and
now you have to get technical on me! :)

Ok I will try to be TC, Have a great change from 19 to 20!
Better guys?

Let's see, can't say Happy Holidays, it must be Merry Christmas, and
can't say have a great next century as it isn't TC. mumble mumble.

Ok I am over it Have some JOY, PEACE and LOVE during the winter
solstice  and winter months (the moon was beautiful tonight so
tomorrow it should be even better!). May you find something blooming!
Deb walks off hoping someone doesn't find fault with that last one. :)

Happy hols to all you guys out there, too! I was looking forward to viewing
the solstice moon tonite, but we are fogged in and I am not sure we will be
able to see anything more than our hand in front of our face! Still have
not made any plans to celebrate the end of the century.....my DH and
assorted other close friends and relatives will all be working re: possible
Y2K issues.....gotta start*** out with somebody other than these
computer tekkies. Was invited to a rocking Millenium party, but don't want
to go by myself. Maybe I'll just spend my New Year's Eve on the computer
visiting with you all??
