Decorated for the Holiday

Dear fellow LensUsTogether participants:

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 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 2010, 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 or is the only "AMERICA" in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, color, 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.

"Happy Holidays"

In case you were thinking that I am extremely witty and clever, let me disavow you of that peculiar notion. I stole borrowed the above from our friend, the internet.

Just kidding, of course, dear friends! I wish all of you the most joyous of holidays spent with the ones you love.

"Merry Christmas"


  1. LOL very clever!! and it's exactly my feelings. though I celebrate christmas - i wish love and peace to whoever is celebrating whatever holiday.

  2. LOL I wholeheartedly agree with all of the above!!!!We celebrate Christmas and loving tidings to everyone everywhere!!!!

  3. a verrry merrry christmas from India and that sea horse is adorable!

  4. Thanks for the giggle, even the seahorse is laughing!

  5. Thanks, I'll accept your wish and pass it on.

  6. Funny!

    I have fishy ornaments, too, and have always wondered if I was the only one...

  7. I love the seahorse, for a moment I thought oh no not another contract to sign. lol. Have a great holiday. Take care.

  8. Thanks, ladies! I had fun with this one and I'm glad you took it in the spirit in which it was intended.

    Diahn, I have another seahorse that's pinky-orange and I have a really lovely colored fish that's about 6 inches long and a little skinny purple fish, too. But I have more cat ornaments than fishy ones! :)

  9. I love your seahorse - so incongruous, yet right at home in the tree!

  10. Oh my, I LOVE this! So funny! And I have a seahorse ornament, too, along with an angel fish ornament... the tropics deserve equal representation, don't you think!?!
