Awoke to wind chills around -20 degrees yesterday morning. Snow drifted to around 2 feet. Thank goodness, however, that our power was out for only six days the week before and back on before the deep freeze and heavy snows hit. Could've been worse.

So, I revived an old illustration for this year's greeting:

 
Safe and Happy Holidays to all.

-- Kent.

Absolutely cold and beautiful Kent! Crank up those chimneys. Did the salt hit the illustration before it hit the road?

Michael - my card has nothing whatsoever to do with the church. Neither does the subject line of this thread.

Sorry pattyfab... I had just listened to a rant on cable and they were mixing it up, injecting politics into the season, or it may have been the other way around. The word "change" came up and I was loaded for bear. Unfortunately you were the first moving target.

Kinda takes the jolly out of the season, which is what I thought this thread was about.

So Happy Holidays and in the words of Bryan Adams... Please forgive me. Better written than sung by me : ) You know the old "can't carry a tune in a bucket" thing.

I dunno, I think that despite the truly dreadful situation we are in right now, there is more hope and excitement about next year than I have seen in a long time.

This thread is actually from 2 years ago.

Everyone may "inject politics" wherever they want, this does not make what they inject anything inherently religious or good.

Also politics (from the Greek πολιτικος; πόλις was the community of citizens) is meant to be a positive word, and any word is inherently positive, at least in its root…

Hi Claudio. The ancient Greek word "polis" meant city, or city state. A link to a solid and reliably-sourced Wikipedia article.

"Politic" is derived from "polis".

Also politics (from the Greek πολιτικος; πόλις was the community of citizens) is meant to be a positive word, and any word is inherently positive, at least in its root

My Shorter Oxford English Dictionary gives this definition for "politic":
Politic a. and Late ME. [-(O)Fr. politique sb. and adj. - L. politicus _ Gr. civic, civil political (as sb., politician), f. citizen, f. city, state; see -ic.] adj.1. = Political a. 1 (by which it is now superseded)) -1756. b. Pertaining to a constitutional state, as dist. from a despotism; constitutional (rare) 1449. 2. Characterized by policy; (of persons) actions or sagacious, prudent, shrewd; (of actions or things) judicious, expedient, skillfully contrived. Late ME. b. In a sinister sense: scheming, crafty, cunning; diplomatic, artfully contriving or contrived 1580.

. . . and any word is inherently positive, at least in its root

That makes no sense to me. Even tho I find this assertion lacking in merit I send you my best wishes for the festive season. Keep the spirit of joy alive in your heart Claudio, and go on doing what you do best. Go with what makes sense to you and don't let anyone else, least of all me, tell you what to do or what to believe.

Kind & warm regards,
j a m e s

I'm not into the Christian part of xmas or any of the hype, but I try hard to live by these principals. "Human is" --- to forgive, to empathize and have compassion for others, no matter what you believe personally.

In other words, it's okay to differ---diversity is strength & richness in any community---as long as after all is said and done we can put aside our ideology and be human, forgive each other's errors and faults, and try to see each other's point of view.

That's not hiding behind a veil of relativism, but an explanation of empathy.

Wishing all typophiles the very best.

"...You’re an inspiration"

Actually, I am just an old geezer who is tired of seeing people kill eachother throughout history over nonsense and never learn from it.

Thanks for the kind words though.
