President Stevo Pendarovski, on the occasion of the great Christian holiday – Christmas, sent a congratulation message to Dr. Kiro Stojanov, Bishop of Skopje and Eparchial Bishop of Strumica-Skopje and to all believers who celebrate Christmas according to the Gregorian calendar.
Respected fellow citizens,
Allow me to congratulate all the Christian believers who celebrate Christmas according to the Gregorian calendar on the great holiday and wish you to spend the holidays in peace and harmony, filled with joy and happiness.
The Feast of the Nativity of Christ is always associated with time spent in the arms of loved ones, in the midst of the warmth of our homes. Let us respect the tradition this year and celebrate within the closest family, avoiding movements, gatherings and thus contribute with our responsible behavior to stop the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic and preserve the lives and health of our fellow citizens. May the greatness of this holiday and its significance be our spiritual support and hope for overcoming the crisis and for return to normal everyday life!
I hope we will be able to preserve the energy and light of the Christmas holidays throughout the year, remaining caring, in solidarity and humane, always with positive thought and giving love.
Jesus is Born!
