Dear Buddha, Please bring me a pony and a plastic rocket ...

Happy Holidays!

This is normally the time of year when this agnostically atheist Taoist with Buddhist leanings goes on a bit of a tear about things like the ridiculousness of people getting offended by the use of "Happy Holidays" vs "Merry Christmas" or the differences between secular and religious holidays of the season.

But, frankly, it's all been said.

And I'd rather spend the very few minutes I have free for blogging today to just wish *everyone* a jolly holiday - whichever one or two or six you choose to celebrate and whichever way you choose to celebrate them.

We observed the Winter Solstice earlier this week, and today, we're baking cookies and pies and other yummy things for the first of two Christmas feasts this weekend.

Personally, I'm kinda looking forward to Boxing Day, too. Any excuse to celebrate works for me. ;)

Take a minute to tell me what and how YOU celebrate this time of year?

Happy Chrismahanakwanzayulestice,
