Christmas message from Tony and Margie Abbott.
Christmas is a great time of year.
In our family, like yours, Christmas is a time to come together, share stories, exchange gifts, enjoy a wonderful meal and be grateful for what we have.
It is a time of joy and anticipation. But for some, for whatever reason, Christmas can be difficult time – it’s up to all of us, to remember everyone who’s doing it tough.
All of us as Australians have much to be thankful for – we are an open, decent and generous people, who live free of the turmoil and bitter divisions that have gripped other nations.
From our family to your family – we wish you a happy Christmas – may it be an enjoyable, peaceful and safe time for everyone.
