I was going to wish a Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year to everyone, but wasn't sure if this would conflict with the diversity and equality agenda that prevails across the public sector. I think the following greeting is about as politically correct as I can make it, though I'm sure someone will tell me if rget think otherwise!
Please accept with no obligation, implicit or
implied my best wishes for anenvironmentally conscious, sociallyresponsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of
thewinter solstice holiday, practiced
within themost enjoyable traditions of
the religious persuasion of your choice, withrespect for the religious/secularpersuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to
practicereligious or secular traditions
at all . . .
