comment Does English have words to describe the lowest rank member of society?
+1 for serf. The rest, as already stated, seem archaic.

"you can all do as you like until then" seems the most idiomatic in AE. (added it as an answer)

comment Alternative to “Merry Christmas”
@BenHocking: While it's not offensive in the least for someone to respond with "happy holidays" (i.e., holy days), in the US you would have to be living under a rock to be unaware that secularists have been trying to de-Christianize Christmas for a long time. Jay's answer is a reasonable response to this nonsense.

comment Alternative to “Merry Christmas”
I like the first sentence of your last paragraph, but "happy solstice" or "good yule"?? If you're not offended to be wished a merry Christmas, why not just offer the same in return? Arguably the majority of the world celebrates Christmas, or at least the majority of the US (if that's where you happen to be).

Ooh, I like it. Associated groups is nice and general, and leaves open the exact closeness of the relationship.

Containing group may be the best we can do. Super-group is another one, although it reminds me of Cream. Ancestor feels too specific for my use.
