    Christmas wishes from The President and First Lady

    Christmas is here, Poles in Poland and abroad are gathering around the tables for christmas eve dinner. We read Holy Gospel, wish all the best to each other and eat twelve traditional vegetarian dishes. Poles celebrate this as a part of lent. An important detail to mention: one can get their presents only after all meals are done and christmas carols are sung! Let us listen to the christmas wishes from the Polish presidential couple: President Andrzej Duda and first lady Agata Duda!

    For this christmas we would like to wish all the best to all of our fellow Poles who live in the country and abroad.  We wish you health and joy and happy moments with your families. 
    On christmas eve we sit around the table and unite according to our national traditions. Let’s sing together our beautiful christmas carols.
    May no one be lonely and sad in this unique time, for christmas is the time to smile and be together. 
    Let us remember about those in need. Let us show compassion to those who might not experience it in everyday life. 
    I hope this Christmas will be a very special time for us all. 
    We wish you a joyful time!
    Merry Christmas!
