From the EastWing, Pick & Choose, Politically Correct Holiday Greetings

Greeting to all and welcome new friends to the EastWing.

With all the excitement of the arrival of the new Grand Baby Girl, Fiona Ella Ruth Howard, thrown into the holiday mix, I’ve forgotten to wish the traditional holiday greetings for this time of the year to my weekly EastWing Friends. So before this day closes out the year and tomorrow brings in the new year and the last day of celebration for many, I’d like to say this:

To All My Democrat Friends, and you know who you are. So I’ll not call you out here, Just pick the greeting that best fits your view of life through those rose colored glasses:

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 persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice… religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2016, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere.

Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference.

To My Republican Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

I Wish you well,
