I’d like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season, which includes Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, St. Stephen’s Day, Festivus, New Year, and of course general good will and fortune. If an inclusive wish of holiday cheer is in any way offensive, I’d mention the giving and loving spirit of the season and wish you the very best of it!
