Happy Christmas

The entire time I lived in the UK (well the entire Christmas time that I lived in the UK) it drove me nuts that people would say Happy Christmas instead of Merry Christmas. It seemed so wrong (I think I was homesick).

Now that I'm not living in the UK I find the phrase "Happy Christmas" quite endearing and wonderful (I think I'm homesick).


So I wish you a

Happy Christmas

and a Merry New Year

(hopefully I'll be back before then, though)

p.s.

I would like to express a heartfelt thank you to all those who have sent me Christmas cards. My lack of sending you Christmas cards is not in anyway an indication of my lack of love for you. I really do love you and your cards. So even though I am completely inept at this tradition, please keep sending them. I promise someday to get my act together and send you cards as well.

Happy Christmas!
I've always loved that phrase.
I keep shoving back the Christmas card guilt--this is the first in about 20 years that I haven't sent one... we're planning on making it up in a Happy New Year version.

I always wondered why in the poem "The Night Before Christmas" it says "Happy Christmas to all.." Now I know. I'm so jealous that you got to spend Christmas in the UK. It seems like it would be magical.
Happy Christmas!
