And Happy Solstice, Too!

From a (quick) reader:

You know what I realized yesterday? It struck me with sudden, satori-like illumination.
To be truly consistent, these "happy holidays" blighters should never, ever wish anyone a Happy New Year. At least not in late December or early January.
Reason being? IT'S THE CHRISTIAN CALENDAR!! We can't have people proselytizing for Christocentric belief-systems and theistic Weltanschauungen by imposing the calendar of the Religious Right on innocent progressives!
The Wiccans need a calendar. I know a Wiccan, & she's very sweet. I'm going to suggest it.
Happy Solstice to you and may Goddess and God bless you as we come to the end of what the Christians call 2002 (the Common Era). Really, day 28 of the month Nakedtree (two days before the 1st of Snowyknife) in the year of Lady Earth 5,678,924,220.

The Christian calendar? It's worse than that! It's the Gregorian calendar. And "Gregorian" refers to... Pope Gregory XIII. :)
