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.

    • You can learn a lot by watching ASL speakers talk to each other. Pick a video and then try to imitate what they are saying and how they are saying it. It is important that there is more than one person in the video so you can see how they react and respond with turn taking. Please post a video that you would like to discuss, and then ask questions about everything. Eventually you will undersrand enough to not need to ask a lot of questions in future videos. Here is an example to the knid of video to study. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hRRw15weblc
    • I am new at learning ASL so I could use the practice 
    • Thanks Lysandor your reply it's very helpful! 
    • Hey everyone, I'm HoH and am a proficient signer. I learned ASL through a community program as well as in college a few years ago. However, over the years my signing skills diminished since there aren't many signers in my family/friend circles or my local community. I hope I can make some friends here and eventually improve my signing skills to where they used to be, and hopefully better. ☺️ - Ryss
