A Christmas message from President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.
“To all Christian worshipers in Croatia and abroad I wish a peaceful and Merry Christmas from the heart!
May this joyful Christian holiday motivate us again this year for gift-giving, not only material ones, but to give attention, compassion and understanding, with the faith that we will give these gifts throughout the year.
Let us share with each other the goodness of our hearts, let us strive to listen to each other, understand each other, be united, show solidarity and tolerance, in order to give Christmas its full meaning.
May Christmas be an inspiration to persevere in the spiritual and material renewal of our Homeland.
To all Christian worshipers in the Homeland and abroad I wish a blessed Christmas and best wishes in the New Year 2018!”
