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 2018, 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 countries 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 of the wishes.
I say Merry Christmas and I don't care whether you are a liberal, conservative, idiot or whatever. Just to clarify, the comma's in there indicate that idiot is a separate term and not that I am calling you liberal or conservative idiots.
That is something for your location jonty. I remember this time of year when I was younger and it was always around -25C and up and lots of snow. The year I got married there was a day in December. I think it must have been about -30C but the sun was shining and we must have had 3 feet of snow.
