Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Thursday, December 22, 2005 Share: Digg Technorati Delicious StumbleUpon Facebook

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays in poora American ishtyle. I heard recently that Merry Christmas is not all that "secular" a greeting and therefore Happy Holidays is being widely used? Weird. Apparently Bill O'Reilly doesn't like the rebadging. Yeah. I would agree with him for once because Merry Christmas has a much better sound about jingles. Can you imagine Happy Diwali called Bright holidays? ugh!!

Anyway, here's a christmas present from Ciro Balzano, our friend from Italy, to all of us here at TCP. Download it and send it to everyone as a Christmas card :-)

Joe, Anthony (and all others for whom christmas doesn't just mean vacations) Merry Christmas to you and your family from TCP/IP & L1Cache. And to Sonia Faleiro who's got another fantastic article on her site on RAKHI SAWANT!!!! Eldest: Must be fun time for you for a week? Christmas vacations in school na?

Check Akshay's blog - He has some amazing photos posted. Not to miss.

Update: Check out original comic strip - Arbit Choudhury 2005 collection

P.S: On Sonia's blog, I got the first comment ;-)

Er yeah, it has to do with political correctness and having the entire media favour just one religon when the US clearly isn't.

But thats diversity for you.

Merry Christmas all of you.

Merry Christmas folks! Do have a wonderful time during this time of caring and sharing. I dont want to sound religious but I wish baby Jesus brings cheer and joy to all of you and your families.

A special wish goes out to TCP (and IP ofcourse!) during this holy and jolly time. You are a Santa to all of us bringing a whole new world of comics and long forgotten memories. God Bless You! May your tribe increase!

I am off on vacation for the next 10 days and will see you all guys next year! ;-) (I couldnt stop myself from saying that...)

take care people.

hey TCP
24th dec to 8th jan HOLIDAYS!!!!!! yipppppeeeee!!!!. am off to eden island ( mom and dads place) to relax and not think about school. lots of coffee (filter) long chats with rs and sibling ( am organising a family Phantom quiz contest the winner gets a copy of a phantom comic!!)

merry christmas to the TCP family. heres a poem for you....

I’m choosing a way that is new
To say something about you
Childhood memories expand
With your helping hand
TCP, ‘bout you this is true.

Like music that’s mellow not brassy
Like a speech that is strong not sassy
Your good taste prevails
It just never fails
The one word to describe you is classy.

It’s Christmas!! The season of cheer
A spirit to keep through the year
Warm wishes we send
And friendship we extend
These holiday greetings sincere.
