Merry Christmahanukwaanzukah!


To my dearest Word Nerds,

I have owned, moderated and ran a number of communities over the years, and none of them have been nearly as special as this one. While we're not the most active - in terms of commenting - it is definitely the most polite and tolerant I have ever experienced.

Years ago, I made the mistake of offering a Happy Christmas to a community I ran, and got practically run out of town under accusations of bigotry and racism by a collection of non-Christians. As an Atheist myself, I vowed to never try and do it again.

You guys are all amazing, so for the first time in a long time, I'd like to offer a 'Festive' message.

No matter who you are, where you are from; no matter your race or nationality; no matter your culture, religion or creed - Whether you're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Bodhi Day, Ashura, Posadas Navidenas, Yule, Litha, the Death of the Prophet Zarathushtra, Watch Night, Holy Innocents, Solstice, Festivus, Giftmas, Noworkmas or Bah-Humbugmas, I would like to wish each and every one of you and your families happy holidays.

Last year I posted a poem for you all, written by myself. This year, it's joined by a brilliant illustration by our very own brbplayingchess*.



No matter what holiday - religious or otherwise - you're celebrating, we can all band together as one under the fear of the Oncoming Madness.

With wordy love for you all,

Your Maintainer,

- Nerdfury.
