  • Merry Christmas Everybody

    Legally, politically correct Christmas Greeting (I didn't write this, but should have!!)


    Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my wish for an
    environmentally conscious, socially responsible, politically correct,
    non-addictive, low stress, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice
    holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious
    persuasion of your choice, as well as the secular practices of your choice,
    but with full respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or
    traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular
    traditions at all. And further, please accept my wish for a fiscally
    successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition
    of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2006, but not without
    due respect for the calendar of choice of other cultures whose contribution
    to our diverse society has helped make this country great (not to imply
    that USA is necessarily greater than any other country, and without regard
    to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, veteran
    status or sexual orientation of the wisher, wishee or their third party
    beneficiaries). These wishes are limited to the customary and usual good
    tidings for a period of approximately one year, or until the issuance of a
    subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first. Use of the term
    "Holiday" herein is not intended to, nor shall it be considered to be,
    limited to Judeo-Christian celebrations or observances, nor to such
    activities of any organized or ad hoc religious community group, individual
    or belief (or lack thereof). In particular, the word "holiday" is used
    herein without reference to its etymology. Note: By accepting this
    greeting, you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to
    clarification or withdrawal, and is revocable ab initio at the sole
    discretion of the wisher at any time, for any reason or for no reason.
    This greeting is freely transferable provided that there is no alteration
    to the original greeting text. Any transfer is to be at the risk of the
    transferor who, by making such transfer, thereby agrees to hold the wishee
    harmless from any and all adverse consequences resulting from such transfer.
    This greeting implies no promise by the wisher to actually take any action
    or fail to take any action to implement any of the wishes for the wishee
    her/himself or others, or responsibility for the consequences which may
    arise from the implementation or non-implementation of same. This
    greeting is void where prohibited by law, custom or policy and is offered
    irrespective of any card, hard copy greeting or embarrassing self-indulgent
    letter summarizing achievements in 2005, however mendacious, which may or
    may not have been purveyed by myself or any member of my extended family.
    Best (sorry, reasonably endeavored) Wishes.

      mjeansonne, I want to thank you for some much needed laughter, (albeit only some continued snickering). I did thoroughly enjoy your seasons greetings. I am not a religious person by any stretch of the imagination but the politically correct version of what should be Merry Christmas and Happy New Year just drives me up a wall.

      Thank you for your wishes Bob, I wish that we could have done a little visiting at some point during this last year but alas it was not to be.

      If I am still consuming oxygen at near my current rate I'll be in Omaha next fall and I do hope to meet a lot of people there. In the interim please accept our sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. Fred & Johnna Cook

            And I would like to add, before Dec. 23rd slips away, a Happy Festivus to everyone! (invented by George Costanza's father on Seinfeld in 1997)

            Please be sure to enjoy celebrating Festivus with the following:
            1) Airing of Grievances
            2) Comfort Food
            and
            3) Feats of Strength

            Merry Christmas, folks!

              Actually, I heard on the radio today ( I'm not sure if it was Clark Howard, Neal Boortz, Rush, or Glen Beck) that festavus preceeds the Sienfeld show and is a real event

                  I've been busy with so many things that I haven't even started, let alone driven, the '54 Champion for I don't know how long.

                  Today I finally had a few extra minutes, so I went out to the garage and stepped on the starter and it quickly fired up as if it was driven just yesterday. (And no big surprise...in 9 years of ownership it has never failed to start for me.)

                  Here in Western PA we have finally had a (relatively) warm spell for several days, and the roads are clear. So I took it for a little spin. Ten miles or so. Just to keep it limbered up.

                  And as I drove, I thought about all of you and how much I enjoy visiting this site, and all your interesting posts.

                  I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a happy 2006. I hope you all get to drive your Studebakers soon, too, and have a nice little drive, as I did today.

                    Merry Christmas to everyone. Even though I have been a Studebaker owner for only a few months, I have met a lot a great Studebaker folks both here and elsewhere. In fact, I am beginning to think that my town of Ingersoll, Ontario is the Studebaker capitol of Canada!

                        I'd like to chime in here with greetings to all and a wish for safe and happy, breakdown-free motoring in '06! I've been blessed with an understanding and tolerant bride and a love for Studebakers. With so much want in the world, I count those blessings everyday.
                        Thanks for all the great advice in '05, and Merry Christmas/Happy Hannukah to all!!

                          Merry Christmas to all.
                          Here's hoping that Sandy Claws was generous to a fault.
                          Happy Holidays to all SDC members. Cheers.
