To all my pagan friends, joyous solstice!
To all my atronomy-friends, I hope you enjoyed the eclipse. I didn’t see it. I went to bed. I woke up a little bit after midnight and went out on the deck, but there were clouds.
To all my Christian friends, have a Merry Christmas!
To my Jewish friends, I hope Hanukkah was wonderful.
For my agnostic friends, have a prosperous New Year.
For my younger, jaded, post-Goth friends– whatever, dude.
For my reincarnated Roman soldier friends, enjoy the celebration of the birth of Mithras!
For everyone; safe, healthy and happy winter holidays!
