Assistance with Signing Happy Holiday Greeting

Hello! My name is Autumn and I am currently learning ASL (I have taken 4 semester through Gallaudet) and the college where I work is creating a holiday video greeting in a variety of languages and I would really like to have them include a greeting in American Sign Language since we have a number of alums who are Deaf and use ASL.  I know how to say basic greetings "Happy Holidays from Grinnell College" but the script they want is “May it always be the season … to embrace our differences … and celebrate global understanding. Happy holidays from Grinnell College.” This is more complicated than I know how to sign.  Would anyone be willing to help me figure out the most appropriate way to sign this sentiment?

    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
    • I'll have to try some of these
