The Orange County DA's Office No Habla Christmas

The Orange County DA's Office No Habla Christmas

A winter solstice holiday greeting specially for the OCDA

December 14, 2007

As part of an ongoing commitment to improve the quality of life in Orange County communities, the Orange County District Attorney's Office (OCDA), Delhi Community Center, and Toys for Tots will celebrate the season with 40 special families at the 9th Annual Adopt-a-Family event. The holiday party will be held tomorrow, Saturday, December 15, 2007 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Delhi Community Center at 505 East Central Avenue, Santa Ana.

The Delhi Community Center selected 40 families needing some cheer during the holidays. They will receive holiday dinner gift certificates and toys for their children, which were donated by OCDA's staff, family, friends, and affiliates. The adopted families are invited to attend a holiday celebration to receive their gifts and participate in a fun-filled morning featuring arts and crafts activities, balloons, baked goods, and an opportunity to meet and take pictures with Santa Claus.

Whereas the Orange County Sheriff’s Department will host a Christmas Cruise, we found it interesting that in the politically correct world of the Orange County DA Santa Claus is mentioned, given the recent complaints by a special interest group claiming that as typically depicted Santa is weight challenged and the group would prefer to see a slimmer, trimmer, buff version.

Also interesting to see that in the Spanish version of the press release announcing the event, “special families” is translated as low income, and Holidays is translated as Christmas, where as Santa Claus is translated as Papa Noel.

Apparently the Orange County DA no habla Christmas and no habla Low Income. Hence, we com posed a winter solstice holiday greeting specially for the OCDA's office:

In the Holiday spirit…

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, our best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect to the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all…

…and a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2007, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great, (but not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country or is the only “America” in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform, or sexual preference of the wishee.

(By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. No fur-bearing or other animals were harmed or subjected to humiliation in the creation of this wish although plea bargains are still being contemplated by the accounting firms who audited last year’s gift list. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher or whichever other person’s intelligent design went into its creation – oops, its design).
