Heathen's Greetings!

Posted by daizi December 24, 2007 in the Group General Discussion.


From one heathen to the other heathens: Heathen's Greetings!


This time of year has much to offer the two Judeo-Christian traditions. But what of the other traditions? In the spirit of this time of year, I'd like to offer greetings to those C-Podders who aren't Christian, Jewish or Mormon, and who don't celebrate Kwanzaa. People like me (realist, naturalist, some might say atheist, although I don't liked to be defined in deist terms) who don't believe in god(s).

Happy New Year! Dai

And, if anyone knows the proper Chinese for any of the following terms, so much the better.  I made the first two up. This might be a good topic for a lesson as well.
