Merry Christmas!

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
Not Christian? See if there is something below that fits the holiday season for you.
Happy (pick one)!

Bodhi Day - Buddhist; 8 December – Day of Enlightenment

Festivus - Fictional; December 23

Hogswatch - Discworld; 25 December

HumanLight - Atheist; December 23 - celebration of "a Humanist's vision of a good future."

Hanukkah - Judaism; starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.

Kwanzaa - Fictional; Created by Maulana Karenga - A fake "African" holiday contrived in 1966. He was a prominent black nationalist during the 1960s, when his organization was involved in various violent operations. He was sent to prison in 1971, after he and some of his pals tortured two women with a soldering iron and a vise, among other things. He emerged from prison in 1974 and he got himself installed as the chairman of the Department of Black Studies at California State University at Long Beach. CSULB wasn't the only American university that got the racial willies during the 1970s and set up a tin-pot black-studies department, but CSULB was the only one that hired a chairman who was a violent felon.

Pancha Ganapati - Hinduism; 21–25 December – modern five-day festival in honor of Lord Ganesha.

Yalda - Paganism; 21 December – The turning point, Winter Solstice.
