But 'tis the day of the season -- literally, for two of the world's great faiths, and we just missed the solstice (do Western Civ. and the various calendars ever manage a triple-play?) and therefore,
or whatever other wish would be most appropriate for you.
As I have written earlier, I don't feel the least bit hesitant about all-encompassing holiday wishes; you can wish a cautious "Season's Greetings" or "Happy Holidays," and I'm fine with that -- or you can be just as specific as you like, religiously, culturally, whatever. It is the thought that counts and for at least just this one day, at least in just this one, widely (and however tenuously) shared culture, with the Russians and the Greek Orthodox leaping a little ahead of their day and the various solar-calendar pagans lagging, let us wish one another well -- and mean it.
The very best of holiday wishes to you and yours, from Tam, Rannie, Huck and me, here at Roseholme Cottage.
