Assistance with Signing Happy Holiday Greeting

Recommended Posts

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?

    • Hey, 
      My name is Lex. I am American but settling down in Korea. For the tourism industry, I want to be able to provide ASl as well. Most HOH/Def students in Korea study ASL well so this would be the most universal sign language that I could learn. 

      I am a complete beginner. So looking to take tips from anyone. 

      Thank you. 
    • Hi everyone, my name is Lindsay, I'm 28 years old, and have CP (cerebral palsy). ASL has become the most useful tool in my life, to help me communicate with others around me, and in my community. I would like to learn more sign language to help me communicate with others in my life, to make new friends, and meet new people. I know the basic signs, and a little more.. I'm not able to verbally communicate due to my CP, so being able to learn more singing would be wonderful!!
    • This is the perfect place to post this!  In my experience, the ILY handshape version is more friendly and succinct, good for goodbyes to friends or lovers(works for groups too).  The  I, Love, You version is more emotive, and can be used more emphatically.  I would use it for emphasis or if you're trying to make a stronger point(body movement and facial expression are vital).  Hope this helps!
