2019 Christmas Message from New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern
Kiri katoa, everyone, and a very, very merry Christmas to every single one of you.
I hope if I have one wish for you this year, I hope that all of you bar watching this message now, are then putting down your devices, stepping away from social media and spending some quality time with family and friends.
And as we go into what will be a big 2020, an election-year 2020, I hope that everyone finds, you know, a little bit of peace as they go into the next year after a pretty tough year for New Zealand.
I know for me, I’m going to be focused on just continuing the work that we’ve done this year, to keep going, keep making progress on some of those big challenges.
Until then though, Meri Kirihimete, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
