Every year my lawyer friend sends me this greeting. So, I pass it along as if I had thought of it:
Please accept with no obligation, implicit or implied, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect to the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others or their choice not to practice any religious and secular traditions.
A fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2018, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped to make America great (which is not to imply that America is necessarily any greater than any other country or is the only “America” in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, mental ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.
By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:
This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal;
This greeting is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting;
It implies no promise to the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for
himself/herself or others and is void where prohibited by law and is
revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher.
This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, or the Midleton’s runs out, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish.
Issuance of a new Midleton’s will ensure a new wish with much longer lasting good wishes.
IOW: Happy New Year!
