I vote for Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas to replace “Happy Holidays”.
I thought this was very appropriate in the blogging world we hang out in, since it is such an anonymous and yet vastly diverse community where skin, age, height, sex, sexual preference, weight, ethnicity, race, creed, acne, beauty, culture, and nationality mean nothing. Ramahanukwanzaamas is a wonderful way of wishing folks a Happy Ramadan, Happy Hanuka, Happy Kwanzaas, and Happy Christmas all wrapped up into one word.
So, wishing you a great Ramahanukwanzaamas filled with whatever joy and traditions you celebrate. I wish you a warm and loving reunion with family, a love fest with friends and lovers, and time spent away from your computer or with your computer, whichever makes you happiest.
I also want to remind you to take time doing something you love that you haven’t done in a while. If you’ve been glued to your computer for months on end, take a serious break. If you longed to spend time on the web, then spend it. If you have been alone, spend time with people. If you have been surrounded by too many people, spend some time alone and learn to enjoy yourself again. Give yourself the gift of you and let others take care of themselves for a little while. Let that be their gift to you, too.
