Christmas is a time for compassion and kindness- PPP
Full statement from the Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP):
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.
The holiday season is a time of joy, goodwill and sharing. It is also a time for compassion and kindness as we all endeavour to spread peace and love towards our fellowmen and women for the betterment of humanity.
Our dear country abounds with traditions for Christmas, as Guyanese, despite their challenges, find ways and means to share in the true spirit of the season. It is these traditions and values that have come to make this period here unique and much anticipated, epitomizing what we have all come to hold dear at this time of year.
As we celebrate in the ways we can, our Party urges reflection so that the pertinent messages and significance of this festive time are not lost.
Christmas marks the birth of the saviour Jesus Christ whose exemplary life and teachings provide guidance for the upliftment of humanity. Let us all be inspired by what he stood for and continues to represent so as to build a more tolerant society and a better Guyana.
Our Party also urges that we all keep in our thoughts and prayers, the needy, the less fortunate and the many others who are faced with personal challenges thereby preventing them from truly experiencing the festivities of this season.
Merry Christmas to all!
People’s Progressive Party
