MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!!!

Post by Elemental » Mon Dec 24, 2018 10:04 am

Two thousand and eighteen. Soon to be nineteen!

It's been a time, hasn't it? We've seen the return of the comic, and probably a whole lot of other things have happened.

You may be feeling like a year's worth of burdens have been layered onto you. Or not? But maybe. I'm sure we all have some stuff going on.

Let's all take this opportunity to let go for a while.

Wherever you are, whenever you're reading this, I'd love if we could all take a moment together to just stop.

Probably asynchronously. I mean, it's a forum. It's not really suited to a simultaneous experience. Whatever.

As you read this, it's my hope that you can take a big deep breath. Hold it for a little while. Then just slowly let it out. Do it again. Breathe in slowly. Let it out slowly. Close your eyes if that would help.

I'll wait.














Keep breathing. Slowly and deeply.












And now that you've had some air, let's chill together and eat lots of food. <3
Oh look, it's Christmas again!

Merry Christmas, everyone :)

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, all that noise.

Note: Being a Nicholas this time of year gets really annoying when you work in a call center that has a lot of the older folks calling in. (read: Retirement support)

If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

The Werefrog am a devout agnostic (lapsed atheist), and The Werefrog want to tell you it is HAPPY HOLIDAYS, not Merry Christmas.

Okay, seriously though, hope all the holidays were great for everypony, from St. Nicholas's Feast Day to Christmas, and have a great Epiphany.

The Werefrog work in a call center with a guy named "Sir". That's an interesting one.

I think you think the word replacement script you’ve got for your browser is cute and funny, but it does wear thin quickly.

It turns out if someone wants to wish you a Merry Christmas they can. If you want to get your nickers in a twist because you don't partake in a particular religion/belief/organization, that's on you. If someone wishes me a Happy Hanukkah or Kwanzaa I'm not going to tell them off or make some lame correction because I don't practice their religion. I'm going to thank them for taking the time to make my day a little brighter and wish them the same. Celebrate people for who/what they are, not what you want them to be.
