Skeptic in Made Me Laugh

To All My Liberal Friends:  Please accept with no obligation, explicit or implied, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non addictive, and gender-neutral celebration of this period near the winter solstice, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, or with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or your choice not to practice any religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically benign recognition of the onset of the calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the different calendars recognized by 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, sexual preference, or financial circumstances of the wishee.
To All My Other Friends: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
