    The nice thing about being part of a world community we can all celebrate together and for each other. No matter what holiday(s) you celebrate, best wishes and lots of happiness, good health, and blooms.

    cheers,

    To add my Best Wishes to all. Thanks for a great year in the forum, all the posters & readers.
    Its a shame we are all so far apart distance wise that we can't all get together for a BBQ & a few drinks.
    I'm sure the orchid stories would get larger as the day went on.

    As my brother would say.... "The flower is THIS big" (only he'd say fish and spread his hands a couple of feet across)....

    "NOT to scale, of course!" LOL

    It would be fun to get together, preferably at a green house somewhere!

    Now if you are of a Christian faith, then 'Merry Christmas' is fine.
    As a Malaysian we celebrate ( we have a word for it in our language 'meraikan' ) all our festivals be they religious or otherwise. We celebrate in the spirit of good will, love and peace - it is in this spirit that I extend my greetings to everyone.Though Islam is the official religion of our country (more than 60% of the population are Muslims ) Chinese New Year, Hindu Dwali, Buddhist Wesak Day, Christmas, Muslim Idil Fitri and Idil Adha, Kaamatan and Hari Gawai of the of the indigenous people of Sabah and Sarawak are public holidays and celebrated nationally. celebrated nationally. A host of other festivals are celebrated by the different ethnic and religious groups throughout the year. We have a unique tradition here called the 'Open House' (Rumah Terbuka) where we welcome allvisitors to our house to share food and drinks, but always sensitive to the religious requirements and obligations of our guests and invariably serve only 'kosher' or 'halal' food.
    So in the spirit of our Malaysian spirit of asking for Forgiveness and Reconciliation and the universal spirit of love, peace and good will to all, my I once again wish everyone a Happy New Year.

    NB: I am a Theravada Buddhist; my eldest son is Buddhist, my second son and wife and children are Muslims, my youngest son is an atheist.In our extended family there are Muslim (Sunni and Shia), Buddhist (Theravada and Mahayana),Taoist, Hindu, Christian (Protestant and Catholic), Jew, Bahai .

    Another BooBoo - 'warhorse' should have been 'workhorse'. I would like to say that I was inebriated with the Christmas spirits but I am a teetotaler, so no excuse just my Malaysian 'Maaf' (Sorry).

    Happy Holiday!

    I am not either for or against Christmas, we do enjoy the family time together.

    Yew,
    I love Malaysian attitude and culture. A lot other countries (and people) could learn something from your big happy family. Looking forward to visiting the country again soon.
