To All 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!
