This is an actual "Christmas Card" that we received in the mail today. I removed the name of the company.

WTF? And some people thought "Season's Greetings" or "Happy Holidays" was bad.

lol, that's a pretty bad one. maybe the card celebrates paganism, as it seems to be very concerned with the movements of the sun and other celestial bodies?

That's a Winter Solstice card. It's not a neutered Christmas card, it doesn't even pretend to be a Christmas card.

Sounds like New Age to me.......

Right and who sends those out? Everybody else sends "Christmas Cards." This company sent a regular Christmas card last year.

It reminds me of a political cartoon I saw recently.

Some company management team/board members are in a conference room. One of the guys says, "Our Christmas Cards this year say, "Season's Greetings!"" To which another guy says, "Do you think we should run that by the attorneys?"

Well in the two years I've worked here, it's the first of its kind we've received out of a couple hundred cards from other companies.

Neo-Pagans and Wiccans send Happy Solstice cards.

Nice. But I always like the Christmas cards from Planned Parenthood



What better way to celebrate the birth of Jesus than bringing up the subject of abortion?

that's disgusting.

Well I talked to another employee and evidently the man and woman that run that firm are big time new age hippy liberal types. The woman actually went to Berkley. Apparently they are very different people who think on a different level than most people in their field. I guess that explains it all.

Yeah and the planned parenthood thing...

That moronic card is pretty descriptive of those who sent it.

A long time ago, people had a mid-winter celebration to recognize the days getting longer (the birth of the sun) Then some other people came along and asked them to join their club. If they did, they could keep their party; but the "u" in sun would be changed to an "o".

pffffft - not even close. Now this is neutered....



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.

makes sense, considering early christians selected dec 25th to take away a holiday from non-christians
