Topic: Happy Holidays

Ok... before the site turns into an evil buzz from all those that don't like the others celebrating "Christmas" as a holiday surrounding the birth of Christ... I want to say to everyone... HAPPY Holidays!

If you're celebrating:
winter solstice
Bodhi Day
Day of the Return of the Wandering Goddess
Feast of Sacrifice or Day of Sacrifice
the Hajj
1000 Lamp Mandala Ceremony
Or anything else I might have missed....

Then I just want to wish you ALL a very HAPPY HOLIDAY to you and your family!

If you're not celebrating anything... then I hope you have a nice December. 

Please... respect other's choices in what they choose to celebrate or not celebrate and don't beat each other over the head for their choices and their good wishes to others who choose to celebrate similarly.  Let's all choose to show good humanity to one another this December.  It's the LEAST we can do for our online FRIENDS!  If we can't all agree to do that... then why are we here?  Inhumanity is, in my humble opinion, not an option.

Merry Christmas MKM.  And to everyone else also.

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

You are so much nicer than you have to be.

Re: Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas to you and to everyone else the same.

Re: Happy Holidays

Well thank you MKM ... And Happy Holidays , Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and all the other good folks on here ...

As Scrooge's nephew said , " I plan to wish him a merry Christmas every year , whether he likes it or not " , ( well something to that effect ) ... L O L ............ Thanks again .........

Group Hug!!!!

All the very best of wishes to everyone in Chordieland and beyond.

[Nicely done, Amy]

Is anything really made up of zeros and ones??

Re: Happy Holidays

Wow - That's quite the list Amy. I think I will attempt celebrating every one of them. I so love a party!

So where to start? I do believe today is the Winter Solstice so that seems a good place to begin. Now I just gotta figure out an appropriate cocktail.

Rule No. 1 - If it sounds good - it is good!

Re: Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas to All,

I noticed MKM missed Boxing Day the 26th but we have to cut her some slack smile

Tops, here's a cocktail that I tried out on my wife last night, she had 3 and wobbled off to bed. I think Old Doll may have pointed this sight out .

Kinda like Christmas in your mouth but after about six of em they get kinda sweet smile


Later, Wayne P

Re: Happy Holidays

WHOOPS!  Sorry about missing Boxing Day!  LOL!  Hey... I tried my best, thanks for the slack Wayne! smile

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays (and Happy December) to all! 

Hmmm... I think I'd do without the Goldschlager (ackkk) ... seems like it needs some pepermint schnapps for a "Chiristmas in your mouth".  How about a little Hot Cocoa with some Dr. thrown in? 

Jeff... I think most of the Winter Solstice celebrators prefer some homemade wine.  I could be wrong, but most that I know are "hippies of the 2000's" and tend to go with things like that... amongst other various "peace pipe" type celebration sharing if you get my drift!  Have FUN!  smile

Re: Happy Holidays

Happy holidays to all and Merry Christmas to the Christians!!!!! I hate the fact that people are offended by Merry Christmas; I am not offended by Happy Hanukkah just not applicable.

Peace and Love to all no matter what your denomination.

Unless you're against peace and love in which case "Chaos and Hatred"....

I used to be disgusted; now I try to be amused.

Re: Happy Holidays

Old Doll, that sounds like a FANTASTIC way to celebrate the new year!  I'll be doing the "usual" ... the party's at my house so everyone can bring their kids and hang out!  One year we had a wedding to go to on New Years eve... I got so much flack from not having my party... LOL!

Re: Happy Holidays

From a cold but sunny central England a very Merry Christmas to everyone, especially Per for what he gives us all each year.

Re: Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas to all from a very snowy Iowa
We got us a white Christmas this year.
We still had 6 inches on the ground from our last storm, and we've received 6 more, so far, from the current one. They say this one could dump 10 - 14 inches when it's all done tomorrow. Plus the wind is howling at around 15 mph with gusts up to 40

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow


We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

Re: Happy Holidays

I would like to take a moment here to wish all

A very Happy Christmas. To all who emailed me privately. A special "Thank You" Its very  much appreciated.

To all the chordians who gave me such great support this year in particular. Your all wonderful and magical to me.
I looked at the beauty of  small red  holly berry today and admired its strength to blossom in the coldest of winter weather. May all your lives blossom with the same strength.
Have a wonderful day where ever you live on the planet.

From the Emerald isle of Ireland Gods blessings to you all.

This is my favourite rendition of the song.
