I received this via email from my brother ( I assume this is making the rounds around the 'Net but I thought I'd share it with you all anyway as it is most "appropo".
To My Democrat Friends:
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 persuasion 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 2008, but not without due
respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose
contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply
that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only
America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without
regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith
or sexual preference of the wishee.
To My Republican Friends:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
