Challenge Traditions

It seems trendy  to be ‘offended’  if individuals wish you the wrong ‘Holiday greeting’  and/or  challenge traditions.  We do wonder about that.  Even if it’s just an attempt to be traditional and crabbier than old Ebeneezer Scrooge himself,  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year  remains our default, standard greeting for December 25th  —every year!    We persist.  So….to everyone……..

   Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  

WE  wish each and every one of  YOU, whoever you may be, wherever you may be —an absolutely happy, safe, warm Merry Christmas, —or whichever Happy Holiday (by definition)  you may choose to substitute,  celebrate, —and/or not celebrate as YOU wish.

Please feel free to wish US  a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year as well, or “Happy Holidays” in the version, within your understanding of,  within your comfort zone, in the translation of, and in any language you prefer!

Trust us on this, the muse and I shall not be offended.  

Have a heart instead….Have a candy cane. Bring life and your heart back into focus.

Have a heart

Have a heart

We also wish you a safe and  Happy New Year

Onward and upward, may your dreams materialize, and may the world and civilization itself prosper with peace and goodwill toward all people. May  happiness and understanding  replace the current global instability caused by war, opportunism, greed, fanaticism,  ideology, politics, the  increasing lack of logic,  the surreal and unnecessary wish to challenge tradition and beliefs,  and significantly, the failure to  use common sense.  Most notably, we sense a failure to respect the world itself, the environment,  and all human beings, wherever they may live.

Humanity can do better. That’s usEvery one of us. We can do better.  Here at Incoming Bytes we wish the Best of the Season to everyone.

Is that Incoming I hear?

  3. hi Nadine,

    We hope this day is not too somber or dreary, we have some snow here and a white Christmas. The world can always use best wishes for peace and healing in whichever form offered, best wishes are always a kindness expressing a greatness of heart. Thank you so much for commenting, and have a wonderful Christmas and a happy, prosperous New Year! ~R
