.. and twelve will bring a smile to your face!

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

We wish you a merry Excuseforholiday-mas*,
And a Happy New Year!


Oh wait, New Year holidays around these parts are based on the Christian (Gregorian) calendar. Someone fix the verse for me ;D-smf

*Although in my case I have no choice, what with computers at work undergoing annual maintenance!

As one who is also religiously neutral, I tend to mentally replace references to Christmas with "Generic Winter Holiday" or "Presents Day". Similarly, I tend to think of Thanksgiving as "National Gluttony Day", and Halloween as "Costumes Day".

Dude, if you want us to celebrate Spaghetti Monster Feast or Week of Rational Thought or whatever that's fine. Find me an artistand I'll be happy to arrange something where you don't feel left out.

That is silly. We celebrate Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, but I don't think he was God. I think Jesus was [strikethrough]way cool[/strikethrough] proportionally more important and had a pretty profound impact, much of it good. Remember to compare to what went before...

You are not alone.

Not wanting to derail the derail, but thanks to Saria for all these christmas pictures. They're all great, but I've particularly liked numbers 7 and 8.

Yes. And not only is this good, it's freaking hilarious!

By your response I take it that the answer is actually 'no', as in, you said that knowing that it was a parody, and you were serious in a roundabout way by mentioning it, rather than deeply sarcastic.
