Merry Christmas Everybody!

I offer this greeting because, delivered correctly, Merry Christmas Everybody! carries less baggage than either Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas ending with a period, dropping the everybody. I say it with an inflection that offers no firm insight into my beliefs regarding the existence or non-existence of a triune god. I hope believers and non-believers alike will appreciate this greeting for what it is, my wish that everybody is able to enjoy the holiday as he or she wishes to enjoy it, in peace, with family, food, fun, and some reflection too. Merry Christmas Everybody!

A Sad Farewell

And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid.
Your heating element burned out long before
Your non-stick coating ever did.
