When Santa needs to consider equality laws when making his naughty & nice lists, it's gone too far.. [Dec. 22nd, 2007|11:44 pm]

Well, we'll be packing away the computer in the house for the next while so, as I'll not be online in the next while I'll take the opportunity now to wish you a... well, there's a long story to this actually:

Apparently, some companies can't say Christmas, for fear of offense. So they said "winter holiday". Unfortunately, the root of holiday is "Holy Day", which might offend the atheists and militant agnostics (they have a marvelous drill song, "I don't know, I can't just be told"). So, to all, a happy vacation... unless you're not actually stopping working, in which case, I wish you a happy celebratory period, if you just happen to be celebrating it right now.

Winter offends those living in the southern hemisphere.

Thus the bane of multinational companies needing to find a politically correct term for a whole load of people taking a vacation to overeat and overdrink in December continues. :)

Your emphasis on overeating and overdrinking is offensive to members of the Fat community and those of the anorexic community. It's also offensive to those who do not drink to religious reasons. It's also offensive to those whose religions advocate fasting.

.. Also some regions don't really have our 4 seasons. For example in many African countries they have rainy or dry seasons.
