May I wish everyone Happy Holidays without starting a fight, throw down or sarcastic free for all?

Asked by Naked_Homer (2160points) December 24th, 2009

Happy Holidays, what ever they mean to you!

If nothing then may they bother you less than they have in the past.

If they don’t mean anything, and don’t bother you, may you just have the best day you’ve ever had, and may it be the worst you ever have.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah (I know it is over by now), and Happy Merry Joyous, Blessed Festivus to the best bunch of jellies ever to grace the interwebs! I love you guys, I would mention a few by name, but I don’t want to leave anyone out and you all know how much our connection has meant over the past year.

Thank you Naked Homer for starting this thread and setting the tone Merry Christmas to you and may all the best of 2010 be yours!

My friend Homer….Merry Christmas and thank you for the invite!

Dog's avatar

Merry Christmas my big furry friend!!!

May I offer the following to all the collective:

May you arrive at your traditional ceremony in great health and leave that way as well.

May the meals be perfection and the creators/ providers of the feast be relaxed and joyful.

May all transpotation be safe as you travel.

May the relative that is usually cranky or emotional be elated, cheerful or off to see other relatives.

May the children behave and be polite. May they dance with joy at their bounty of gifts.

May the conversations flow on the best things of life and may you leave feeling the intoxicating happiness and peace of the season.

May the good memories made this year last a lifetime.

I lurve you all!

Merry Christmas, Happy Giftmas, and Happy Holidays to all of the Jellies. Big smooches from your lady from the land of beer and beavers!

gailcalled's avatar

You forgot to mention the Winter Solstice, now 3 days past, and the lengthening of the sunlit part of the day. That’s a holiday I am happy to see come and go.

And remember to not end the year without a thought to my birthday. I just got an early gift of a mouse (frozen solid) on my deck. That was considerate, and it was on my list

Happy Holidays to all my jellies!! I second @gailcalled and want to add some good thoughts for rangerr! I hope that everyone’s holidays are warm, filled with love and happiness, and perhaps a bit of spiced rum…. I know that mine will be.

dpworkin's avatar

How will all of you be celebrating the Fast of the Tenth of Tevet? It will be here before you know it! Are you denying yourselves any special treats this year?

I’m with my lady now. Her Mom is so cute in that she got us matching p.j.s. The only thing is that they look more like long-johns and they’re not all that forgiving, lol. Perhaps, they’ll be pictures to come.

From The Beatles to you:

Everywhere it’s Christmas

Everywhere it’s Christmas
Everywhere it’s song
London, Paris, Rome and New York
Tokoy, Hong Kong
Oh everywhere it’s Christmas
And I’m off to join the cheer!
Everywhere it’s Christmas
At the end of every year!
Oh everywhere it’s Christmas
At the end of every year!
I said that everywhere it’s Christmas
At the end of every year!
One more time now!
Everywhere it’s Christmas…

Orowainya, orowainya, orowainya, ooh
Endomainya, endomainya, endomainya, ooh

Our story opens in Corsica. On the Verandah is a bearded man in glasses conducting a small choir.

Orowainya, orowainya, orowainya…

Yohoo! Yodellaihetee! Yohoo!

Meanwhile, high in the Swiss Alps, two elderly Scotsmen munch on a rare cheese.

“Mm, wonderful stuff this, Agnes.”

“Aye, it’s wonderful stuff.”

Hodellaihetee! Yodellaihetee!

I’m standing in the entrance to the main tent. Immediately behind me, the festivities have already begun.

“Tell me, are you enjoying the wine?”

“I am indeed your highness. It goes well with me.”

“Yeah, very good, very good. Ha ha ha!”

“The king seems to be enjoying himself tonight!

“You might not have seen him on such good focus since the October Festival.”

“Alright! Is there a doctor here? Is there a doctor around here? Did anybody see one?”

At the same time as this in the Captain’s mess in board, the H.M.S. Tremendous, a toast is being proposed.

“To Her Majesty!”

“To Her Majesty!”

Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho!

Podgy the bear and Jasper were huddled around the unlit fire in the centre of the room.

“There are no more matches left, Podgy,” said Jasper.

“Then buy some, Jasper, old friend,” said Podgy.

“Make a list and afterwards we’ll go to the shop and buy matches and buy candles and buns.”

“There’s no more paper to write on, Podgy.”

“No need to worry, Jasper. You keep saying to yourself ‘matches’ and I’ll keep saying ‘candles’ until we reach the shop. Then we won’t need to write it down, we’ll remember.”

“Who’ll remember the buns, Podgy?”

“We both will, Jasper… Matches.”










In the long dark corridors of Felpin Mansions, a door slams.

And the shadowy firgure of Count Balder appears. The Count is the eccentric son of Baron Landsberg, the inventor of the rack. He speaks…

“Guten taen, meinen damen and herren. Welcome to Felpin Mansions. The Butler will show you to your rooms. Butler!”

“Yes, Sir!”

“Show the ladies and gentlemen to their rooms.”

“Yes, Sir! Come this please.”

“Come in.”

“May I come in?”

“Come, come in, Count.”

“May I?”

“Oh, yes, come in.”

“Ah, thank you. I was wondering if you knew any of the songs from the good old days.”

“Oh, my goodness, yes. Don’t you worry on that score. I hear the Baron likes, uh, I hear the Baron likes the good old tunes.”

“Yes, I do.”

“So do I, Count. So do I.”

“But they’re all melodies, aren’t they?”

“No, don’t worry. I’ll play this one. Do you like this one? Listen to this one.”

Please don’t bring your banjo bag
I know where it’s been
I wasn’t hardly gone a day
When it became the scene
Banjos, banjos all the time
I can’t forget that tune
And if I ever see another banjo
I’m going out to buy a big balloon
And if I ever see another banjo
I’m going out to buy a big balloon
And if I ever see another banjo
I’m going out to buy a big balloon
And if I ever see another banjo
I’m going out to buy a big balloon
And if I ever see another banjo
I’m going out to buy a big balloon

Yes, everywhere it’s Christmas.

Everywhere it’s Christmas
Everywhere it’s song
London, Paris, Rome and New York
Tokoy, Hong Kong
Oh everywhere it’s Christmas
And I’m off to join the cheer!
Everywhere it’s Christmas
At the end of every year!
Oh everywhere it’s Christmas
At the end of every year!
I said that everywhere it’s Christmas
At the end of every year!
One more time now!
Everywhere it’s Christmas
At the end of every year

Ha ha ha, jolly good, ho ho, jolly good.

Thank you, that was really starting to bug me. ^_^

@Dr_C Ju are crazy!!

@augustlan Ah yes. I noticed that too! :) Darn those French spellings!

Blondesjon's avatar

@Fluther. . . I want to thank Fluther, which is notorious for being grammatically snooty and spellingly snarky. This question has been up for 13 hours now and not a single one of you gave @Naked_Homer any kind of grief for his obvious misspelling. This thread is full of posts by some of the most feared speakarians in the Collective.

I think every jelly should hit the follow button on this thread so that the next time a fellow knowledge seeker is complaining about being picked on we can link them to this question.

plethora's avatar

Are you referring to Presidents’ day? Or would it be MLK day? Or Valentines Day? Perhaps Memorial day or Labor Day? Seems we call all those days by their names. Doesnt seem to bother anyone that a Happy MLK day might offend someone, does it? Well, for the same reason, I treat Merry Christmas the same way. It’s Christmas and everyone knows what we are celebrating.
