‘Season of hope and joy’: Anthony Albanese send Christmas message to Australians


Australian Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, has sent a Christmas message to Australians in the lead-up to Christmas Day.

In the message, Mr Albanese encouraged everyone to “spread a bit of Christmas goodwill to those who are doing it tough” this year.

Full Message:

I’m delighted to send warm Christmas greetings during this great festive season.

For Christians, this special and holy time celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, and the gospel of peace, love, and justice. It is a season of hope and joy, as we reflect on the year we have shared and dream about what is to come. 

Australian Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese.

Christmas is a wonderful time to share precious moments with family and loved ones. But for some Australians, it will be hard this year. Some will be facing Christmas while trying to rebuild their lives and homes after the terrible tragedy of floods.

We can all spread a bit of Christmas goodwill to those who are doing it tough. Whether you volunteer or donate, reach out to a neighbour or make a long-postponed phone call to a friend, acting with kindness and compassion is what Christmas is about.

Australians are courageous and resilient, committed to each other and their communities. In the same spirit, may your celebrations this Christmas bring the joy of family and friendship to you all.

Merry Christmas!
