Hi and welcome to my journal. Actually I don't post here very often because I have several place (on-line) where to put my thoughts. So if you're looking e.g. for nerd-and-geek-thoughts you might find them here (

I found this on the newsgroup and it should solve all your problems in giving seasons greetings without offending a considerable part of the world population:

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 2007, but not without due respect for the
calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society
have helped make our country great (not to imply that our country is
necessarily greater than any other country or is the only great country
in the Western or any other 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.

In accordance with enviromental policies procedures and practices no
trees were harmed in the sending of this message; however, a significant
number of electrons were slightly inconvenienced.

May the force be with you!
