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?

The video recording is not working for me and it won't let me upload my own recording so let me know if you'd like to see this translation signed.

Let me know what you think of this translation: now, here, we dif-dif-dif embrace/love, world connections celebrate. Hope always stay. Happy Holidays... etc. 

It's a little abstract but I think it demonstrates the conceptual/visual nature of ASL and conveys the message appropriately.

This confession of faith is significant and transforming because it is a must for everyone wishing to convert t
    • I’ve always loved having options to switch up my home’s look, and the slipcovers for couches from Menotti gave me just that. They fit perfectly and are incredibly easy to change out when I want a new colour or pattern. It’s like having several couches in one! These covers are a smart choice if you like refreshing your decor often.
