Just received this in my Inbox and thought I should share it with all of you. :-)


Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit our 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 2002 but not without due respect for the calendars of
choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped
make Canada great, (not to imply that Canada is necessarily greater
than any other country or is the only "CANADA" in the western
hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, color, age,
physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform, or
software preferences of the wishee.
