Best wishes to all...

as you celebrate/inveigh against/ignore as best you can (or other alternative - delete as applicable) the purported anniversary of the birth of someone who, on the (historically likely but far from certain) assumption that they even existed, was probably born at a quite different time of year (the claims for this time of year appear quite late historically and the date coincides with an apparently totally unconnected pre-existing festival);

And as you live (hopefully) through the forthcoming annual period which is supposedly denominated by the number of annual periods from that birth until now - except that the likeliest information we have about the actual date of the birth suggests that it took place several years before the date from which we are currently counting.
