Message by Boris Johnson on Christmas 2022
Folks, I know that for millions of people in this country and around the world, this is going to be a tough Christmas. I know the pressures on the cost of living. But this is still the moment for us to count our blessings. We’ve put COVID almost entirely behind us. And unlike some recent Christmases, I’m not even going to talk about being cautious because we’ve had such an amazing vaccination programme. We have unemployment at or near historic lows and above all, we have our families, our friends, our loved ones, and the absolute joy of being able to spend time with them, or at least with some of them over the Christmas break.
So let’s think of all those who are working over Christmas or keeping us safe: our armed forces, our frontline workers. Let’s raise a glass to them all. And let’s have a very happy Christmas.
