    A Bright Shining Star

    "This joyful season brings to all of us a measure of happiness that corresponds to the degree to which we have turned our minds, feelings, and actions to the Savior, whose birth we celebrate."

    Not everybody is christian, nor celebrates Christmas.

    Is wishing to everyone a 'very merry Christmas' an ideal, or does one wish happiness at the others' times of celebration too?

    I never saw a post saying 'Happy Diwali' on this site, nor 'Happy Songkhran'!

    I guess is must be a Western importance issue?

    "I never saw a post saying 'Happy Diwali' on this site, nor 'Happy Songkhran'!"

    To be fair there was no prohibition on you wishing us happy 'Diwali', or 'Songkhran'.

    Happy 'Winter Solstice' (21st December, 05:14 GMT)

    Don't forget the pagans, wiccans, and satanists; they need love too.

    Pagans and Wiccans are pretty much covered by Easter and Christmas as far as some posters on the Spirituality Forum are concerned.

    And, for the fundies, satanists are covered by any of the lists other than the one their particular religion celebrates.
