Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas!

Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas!

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.

Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas!

    Nice idea, but what is the “Rama” part for? Is it for Ramadan? If so, Ramadan ended a few months ago…

    Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas? I like the fact that the “Christmas” part actually misses out the Christ part of the word, very appropriate seeing as Christ really has nothing to do with this time of the year. Enjoy the festivities whatever you are celebrating and, above all, stay safe and well.

    Merry non-denominational half price discount shopping and regifting three day weekend in which we all stuff our faces and dread going back to work on Tuesday.

    Great blog you have here, I have learned a lot reading tonight.

    That is exactly what ancient winter festivals across cultures were all about: breaking away from the routine of working in the fields.

    Yeah, like Miriam said, Ramadhan was over ages ago, and it’s not Ramadhan that’s celebrated, but Aidilfitri/Eid Ul Fitr – the day AFTER the month of Ramadhan. Which was in October or November this year.

    But happy holidays everyone :)

    Hi Lorelle,
    This year I picked “Happy HolyChrismaKwanzChaunukhasaurus,”but it turned out to be a little hard to say.

    So Warm Yule Tidings and Happy New Year! Thanks for all the great information you put up here!

    Merry Christmas to you too!

    I always liked to say “seasonal salute”. Out here we get two Christmases, the second for Orthodox Christmas or Slaaviq.
