Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Ooops sorry, what I should have said is........ Happy Holidays!
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... and a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2017, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make UK great (not to imply thatUK is necessarily greater than any other country or is the only "UK" in the Western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual orientation of the wishee.
This wish is limited to the customary and usual good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first."Holiday" is not intended to, nor shall it be considered, limited to the usual Judeo-Christian celebrations or observances, or to such activities of any organized or ad hoc religious community, group, individual or belief (or lack thereof).
DISCLAIMER: By accepting this greeting, you are accepting the following terms: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher at any time, for any reason or for no reason at all. This greeting is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. This greeting implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for the wishee, him/herself or others, or responsibility for the consequences which may arise from the implementation or non-implementation of same.
This greeting is void where prohibited by law.
Not valid in Bowerhill, Melksham or Wiltshire as a whole.....


Please all bear this in mind.

Re: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

No, because "white" clearly has racist overtones.

Please apply to "Common Purpose" for diversity training at once.

NO. Because "Christmas" is made of two syllables: Christ and mas. You cannot, under any circumstances use the word Christ. It is exactly the same as being a jihadist.

https://www.rt.com/uk/365822-governm...tians-bonkers/

"Justin Welby, the Church of England’s most senior cleric, says the government has such a poor understanding of religion that it lumps jihadists and Anglican Christians into one group and considers them both “bonkers.

"Happy holidays" is now the only acceptable term.
