Happy Solstice!

May Your Solstice

The above was my automatic holidayomancy from the Worktank Holiday-O-Matic card generator. I was too slow to put together Christmas cards this year. I took some pictures in Central Park and Midtown on my way back from the dentist earlier this week, and I think I might be able to make a nice card out of one of those for next year.

Oh, and can I tell you how much I hate the phrase “happy holidays”? There isn’t a good reason for it. I wish we could just say “Happy Christmas” and be done with it. If someone says “Happy Hanukkah” to me, I certainly don’t find it insulting; I find it genuine. Anything would be better: “Killer Kwanzaa!” “Yauld Yule!” “Sultry Solstice!” “Bully Boxing Day!” “Gnarly New Year!” Just not “Happy Holidays,” OK? I suppose, as with all things, it will gradually become the norm, but I reserve the right to remain crotchety.

Thank you, and have a nice day.
