Hey! I first published this article around 12 years ago to greet and wish all my HubPages' friends for the New Year ... ...
Let's Celebrate! - Seasons Greetings And Happy Holidays!
I would like to wish all my HubPages friends a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. These wishes go out all the hubbers in my fan club and to those on HubPages whom I have befriended over the past fourteen years!. Warmest greetings and best wishes for Xmas and the New Year. Happy holidays to everyone!
I wish all of you and your families great peace and prosperity, great success, great good fortune and right knowledge.
I do not know whom to start with as I admire each and every one of you guys and gals for your special talents, for your knowledge, sense of humor, and a whole lot of other positive attributes which are quite voluminous. I will not speak about these attributes here ... lest the servers of HubPages explode!
I am also much indebted for the encouraging remarks I receive via email, and for the interesting, informative, valuable and complementary comments left on my article pages ... in the past, when I was excessively active here ...
Frankly I am privileged to know you all and the least I can do to express my profound gratitude to each and every one of you is to publish this message online containing references to most of my HubPages friends individually with a link to their profile pages so that readers could have a glimpse of what is in store for them for their very own benefit.
If I have left out any, it's not by intent, it's just that I am at a terrible loss for words. You see, it's only words and words are all I have to steal ... !!! ...... (Apologies to the Bee Gees!)
So here we go!

How Do You Respond To The Festive Ambiance?
Santa Claus, Hang On A While Please!
I have been on HubPages for over fourteen (at the time of this update) years and I am glad I enrolled here for the very reason that I am able to access the thoughts of people from various parts of the world while being afforded the opportunity to present my thoughts to everyone, for their judgement.
The variety of topics that are available on HubPages has enriched my knowledge and I have even developed interest in topics in which I had no previous interest. I am grateful to the dozens of hubbers and 'hubresses' whose articles have helped to improve my knowledge and re-instate my dwindling interest in the written word!
To such I would like to say that even if I have never left a comment in your Hubs after having read your articles, or even if I had forgotten to hit the "thumbs up" button, or even if I have not had the courtesy of following you, don't get me wrong! I am truly very much indebted to YOU too!
So once again I would like to thank all those who have made comments on my article pages and for the wonderful opportunity you guys and gals have given me to get to know you via your writings. I could go on and on ... but, I have to stop right here as I am still at a loss for words ... !!!
So ... to all HubPages authors, to HubPages admin, and to those readers who arrive here via search engines, recommendations, shared links etc, I would like to wish Happy holidays, Merry Xmas and a Very Happy New Year!
Joy To The World - Peace - Prosperity - Blessings To All!
