Thread: A politically correct seasons greetings!

    Talking A politically correct seasons greetings!

    We wanted to send some sort of holiday greeting to our familiy, friends and colleagues, but it is so difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. So we met with our attorney yesterday, and on their advice we wish to say the following:

    Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, our best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion 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.

    We also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted Gregorian calendar year 2009, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great and without regard to the race, creed, colour, 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.

    No trees were harmed in the sending of this message.

    I like this one!

    They will forget what you said,
    they will forget what you did,
    but they will never forget the way you made them feel.

    In a house, on a street, duh.
    The 'war on Christmas' backlash against those who suggest something more inclusive, promoted on Fox News and so well parodied by Stephen Colbert is really chauvanistic and offensive.

    Is it really so difficult to simply say 'happy holidays'? Pretty much everybody gets a day or two off from work these days which can make them happy, and they are holidays.

    Joyeuse fetes!
    You are cordially invited to toss my salad. There's an app for that!
