OSNews, Generic OSes From the OSNews team, we'd like to wish everyone a merry Christmas (it's Christmas Eve in my country already), or a happy whatever other holiday you might celebrate; it so happens that Hanukkah and Eid ul-Adha have already passed, so my best wishes are in retrospect if you practice the Jewish or Muslim religion. These matters are always like tight-rope walking on the internet, but I'd like to say one thing: please, emphasize not our differences, but celebrate our similarities. And yes, even if you are not religious (like myself), I'd still like to wish you very happy holidays. Enjoy the food, but realise this.

Actually Christmas has a lot to do with Christ - but Yule has little to do with Christmas.

It's just that we from Scandinavia has managed to blend things better (taking the traditions from south and keeping our own terms).

Imagine a Dane calling "Jul" for "Kristmesse" - oh dear...
