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 holidays,
practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the secular practices, religious persuasions, pagan beliefs
or atheist dogmas 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 2009, 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.)
