Happy holidays from NewsForge

Many religions have some sort of holiday during this season, and many companies close down or work short hours until the current year ends and the next one begins. We, too, will be taking time off to spend with our families and friends, so NewsForge will be on a reduced posting schedule between now and January 1. We'll still cover breaking news, and you'll see a trickle of feature articles and NewsVac links, but not as many as you're used to.
As we move into this end-of-the-year slow period, we'd like to thank all of you who have supported us in 2006, and we hope our efforts have helped you professionally or personally. Our job is to inform and entertain our readers, and we work hard to meet these twin goals. Many of our successes are the result of news tips and suggestions from you and other readers. This is as good a time as any to thank you for your efforts, which we heartily appreciate and hope you choose to continue in years to come.

So hoist a glass of ale, wine, juice, or other appropriate beverage, and wish each other good cheer and a bright future.

you posted this on Christmas day and you already missed any sort of celebration for Hanukkah so what other religious holidays are there to warrant saying Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas? And how long does this "season" last that you mention? The US gov't and the majority of the US population (as well as over a 1/3 of the world population) celebrate Christmas and everyone celebrates New Year's (except those offended by new years) so what's wrong with a "Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays"?

Kwanzaa and Boxing Day come between Christmas and New Years, and there might be some others. Newsforge probably wants to cater to more people than just American Christians, so they're playing it safe by not excluding other holidays.
