Christmas Eve

I want to take a moment to say "thank you" to all of my blog followers; Ramblings would surely not be around anymore if not for your dedication and support.  It really means a lot to me.  I love hearing from all of you.  And of course, thank you for so many of your blogs; it's always a delight to read what you have to say, and to learn a little bit more about you.

I also want to wish all of you a very, Merry Christmas.  I understand that not all of you probably celebrate Christmas, and I hope that I do not offend by wishing you a very merry one.  In all honesty, it confuses me when people become offended by holiday well-wishes from faiths they do not celebrate.  In high school, one of my best friends was a confirmed Wiccan.  Even though I'm a Catholic, I was very touched by her wishes of a happy Winter Solstice.  So, I hope that all of you have a wonderful Christmas, and in addition, if you do not celebrate Christmas, I hope you truly enjoy the holiday that you DO celebrate. :)

(Also, on an unrelated note, I'm thinking about bringing back Weekly Wodehouse.  Either that or a Weekly Wilde or Weekly Chesterton.  Please take the survey at the top of the page to tell me which you would prefer. :)


  1. you could do a weekly quote even if it isn't always the same author. and a merry christmas to you too!

  2. Merry Christmas, Tom and Sarah!

    And Sarah, thank you for your wonderful suggestion :)

  3. I hope you had a lovely Christmas. I wish I weren't so busy with work that I could spend more time reading my favorite blogs and keeping up with them! :)

    Also, people taking offense because they can is definitely a personal choice. If the offense is malicious and intentional, that's one thing, but wishing anybody and everybody a happy whatever-holiday, no matter what I celebrate or they celebrate, the point is that we are kind and loving. So yes, I celebrate Christmas, but even if I didn't, I'd be touched that you wished it to me anyway. Thank you. :)

    And I love whatever you post. :)
