Seasonal Greetings?
posted by biffa to Feature Requests at 6:59 AM (61 comments total)

Would it be fruitful to have a specific thread where members can pass on their seasonal greetings and salutations?

If this is inappropriate then happy deletion to Matt, otherwise Merry Xmas and multiple ho's to one and all, verily, even unto the Bush lovers.

multiple ho's to one and all, verily, even unto the Bush lovers.

Even in context, that sounds pretty bad. :-)

Oh shit, I forgot to wish everyone a happy festivus.

Lets all gather around the pole and let the airing of grievances and feats of strength commence!

God bless you all!

My fondest wish is that, one day, the blue, grey and green can all get on together, share the lattkes and forgive eachother the oissubkes of the year - as in this beautiful, beautiful painting (NSFW).

Nah, happy holidays everyone! Thanks, oh ballsy biffa, for giving me the opportunity.

Still, I have to say, mate, because it just isn't clear: what was your question again? ;)

Metafilter is wonderful.

what was your question again?

"Why is a mouse when it spins?" I still don't see how that was a straw poll question... ;-)

I love you all.
Especially you, dong_resin.

Whether your celebratory style is saintly, secular, seductive, or cynical (violence warning), here's wishing every single one of you the best of the season.

Many thanks to all -- especially Matt -- for another great year. *group hug*

every single one of you

Juju (my favourite god-daughter is called Juju too and it was her birthday last week). that's undoubtedly the loveliest sentence of the year.

Every.

Single.

One.

You.

I love the way the plurality (all of you) marries and lives happily ever after with the singularity (every single one). Nobody's left out; everyone's inside. Pure inspiration, thank you!

The of doesn't count. Well, at least until languagehat alights on my sorry ass with an irrefutable argument on the centrality of prepositions. ;)

See, Miguel, as long as your ass is sorry I'll talk to it in its own language!

A happy holiday season to every last one of you contentious filtrates, especially Matt, who makes all this foofaraw possible.

Just don't forget the accent on próspero, is all I ask. :)

I don't know why I'm linking this, except that it's nicer than the Potato animation or the Frenchman-without-pants

The NORAD Santa Tracker reports that Father Christmas is rapidly approaching my time zone, and at this particular moment, all I want for Christmas is a rocket launcher.

Merry Merry.

Families enjoy Christmas by singing together. After a little bit, an orchestra joins in.
