Please accept with no obligation, expressed or implied, my best wishes for
an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress,
non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the summer/winter solstice
holiday, practised 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.
I also wish you 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 Australia great,
(not to imply that Australia is necessarily greater than any other country
or is the only great country in the southern or any other hemisphere or) and
without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical 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.
It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting.
It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes
for her/himself or others, 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, whichever
comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance
of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

P.S. Merry Christmas....
