Christmas greetings from President Gitanas Nausėda and First Lady Diana Nausėdienė

2020-12-24

Dear fellow citizens,

on this special day we would like to talk to everyone, the ones surrounded by the warmth of their loved ones and those in solitude, those brave as well as downhearted, tired, both young and old, strong or suffering from illness.

The light of Christmas is so bright that it helps us see more clearly the things that we fail to notice or appreciate in our daily lives. It helps us see how wonderful life is, how easy it is to smile at another person and see him smiling back, how rewarding it is to reach out to a stranger and hear a simple ‘thank you’ in return.

Today, more than ever, we wish that there were no lonely people. Those of you who are sitting at the Christmas table on your own tonight, you are not alone if you have other people on your mind and they are thinking of you too.

We wish you a peaceful Christmas Eve and a joyful Christmas morning. May this give us the strength to firmly open the gates to 2021, where there will be more harmony, love, good news and mutual trust.

No matter where in the world or Lithuania you celebrate the holidays during this challenging time, we wish you lasting stamina, strength and energy to grow together with the nation.

Let us help our state grow, for it is in our will to choose compassion, warmth, kindness, love and light. So, we both wish you a Christmas miracle. Let us be happy together.

Gitanas Nausėda, President of the Republic of Lithuania
