Merry Happy
Merry Happy Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Christmas, Capitalism, Bah Humbug Day to all our members, visitors, lurkers and index bots here at EvC.

May you participate in your chosen festivities with family, friends, strangers or solo to your heart’s and your wallet’s content.

Eat hearty or not at all. Laugh, dance, sing or sit in solitude as your circumstances allow and may you be happy with your choices … or not.


Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.

Re: Merry Happy or Whatever
Why thank you, AZ Paul3. Christmas i all a marketing ploy, and one could argue that an eternal Deity never really has a birthday except to become human for a season. (I added the whatever to preserve the consensus) But seriously I too hope that everyone has a great time,hopefully with family or friends. Lets all pile in the VW bus and go visit Faiths house. She may be up to baking cookies.

... Lets all pile in the VW bus and go visit Faiths house. She may be up to baking cookies.

A festivus microbus filled with cheer, caroling around town with the smell of fresh cookies and hot chocolate ...

... can I keep the bus?

Re: Merry Happy or Whatever
Sure I can do cookies. Also hot chocolate. No egg nog though, but you can bring that. Not very Christmassy around here this year, one of the years when I'm alone and don't do Christmas. So if you want to visit, bring your own tree and lights. I also gave my guitar to my brother because I wasn't playing it but if you bring one I can strum us some carols.

And a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you as well, and to everyone else here at EvC.

And I wish everyone the best in the upcoming New Year.

I would like to strongly recommend spending Christmas with an almost-two-year-old grandbaby. It’s just as much fun as you may remember it.

Merry Christmas to one and all :-)

Let’s hope for a peaceful and progressive 2020 :-)


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Merry Christmas to all of the EVC family. You may be on your own this Christmas Faith but your family here is all thinking of you.

He has told you, O man, what is good ; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God.

We were at my cousin's place on Christmas Day, 23 people, all related except one, four generations aged 3 to 93.

I collaborated with my 8-year-old second-cousin on a Christmas trivia question, "Which one of Santa's reindeer is featured in two holidays?" I've been trying to remember Santa's reindeer for days but I could only think of seven. She provided the eighth, which was the right answer - Cupid.

A Canadian Christmas
That sounds like the right kind of family Christmas. If I lived in Canada that's what my Christmas could look like too. That's where I have 23 first cousins, though I think a few have died by now that I never met, and all their children who are second cousins to each other, most of whom also have children. None of my parents' generation is still living but a few of them made it into their late eighties and two made it to 90. Must be something in the Canadian water? Air? Prairie? Rockies?
