Happy whatever-you-want-to-call-it

December 22nd, 2010


How does an a-theist like me wish someone a happy Christmas?

After all, I am not a follower of the Christ. “Happy Christmas” trips off my tongue largely out of habit, thanks to my Catholic upbringing, but midwinter celebrations probably pre-date civilisation itself, so why should I be left out of wishing my fellow humans well when the nights are longest?

I feel love for my fellow humans as much as the next person, regardless of their spiritual leanings,  so here is my midwinter wish for you. Please take it very personally.

    So a Happy Xmas to an a-theist from a non-theist Quaker ;-)

    Well, after all this, I won’t succumb to giving Xmas greetings, but I wish you a Happy New Year with lots of leftover Xmas tinsel for your cats to play with. :)
