I was going to wish a Merry Christmas and aHappy 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 orimplied my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration ofthe winter solstice holiday, practicedwithin the most enjoyable traditions ofthe religious persuasion of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not topractice religious or secular traditionsat all . . .
