The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) takes this opportunity to extend greetings to all Guyanese, especially the Christian community here and in the Diaspora, for a joyous and blessed Christmas.
In a message the ruling party said: “The holiday season is a time of joy, goodwill, and sharing. It is also a time for compassion and kindness as we all endeavor to spread peace and love towards our fellowmen and women for the betterment of humanity. Christmas is being celebrated this year at a time when our country is poised for exciting times ahead, as we work towards rebuilding our economy, moving our country forward in new frontiers of development, and creating opportunities for all. As we celebrate, our Party urges that the true spirit and meaning of Christmas helps us to advance all humanity. The birth of the savior Jesus Christ, his exemplary life and teachings, are not only inspiring but offer much guidance for the betterment of all. These lessons provide us with opportunities to build a more tolerant society. Our wish is that in this season, the less fortunate will be especially remembered, and in our caring and sharing, our arms are extended to even the stranger. In the true Guyanese spirit, as a multicultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-religious society, the message of love is apt. Cognizant of the ongoing impact of COVID-19, the party, therefore, urges everyone to observe the necessary safety precautions during this festive season in order to protect themselves and their loved ones.”
