This marvelous salutation, endemic in the Frozen North, is almost unknown south of the 49th parallel. It is encouraging, however, to learn that Canada does indeed now follow the Roman Calendar, despite such anomalies as "Boxing Day" and "Canada Day", and Thanksgiving celebrated on Septober 59th or some such.
Happy New Year, and may the writ drop shortly. (Whatever that means!)
Still awaiting the release of "Spanky And The Notwithstanding Clause" and "Mike Harris Fright."
