Text of Christmas greetings from
President Clinton and Hillary
President Clinton: Hillary and I wish all of you the peace and joy of the
holiday season, a time for us to rejoice in each other's company
and in the spirit of the season -- a spirit of sharing and giving
and making peace.
I want to send a special greeting to all the peacemakers among
us, especially to our brave men and women in uniform who are away
from home. You're on a mission of peace. I join with all Americans
to thank you for your service and to pray for your safe return.
Mrs. Clinton: Christmas is an opportunity for all of us to give
thanks for the blessings we share as families, friends and
Americans. But, most important, it is a time for children, and I
hope that during this holiday season we will remember our nation's
neediest children and extend the spirit of giving to them with our
love, our prayers and our generosity.
President Clinton: May the spirit of Christmas and the magic of the
wonderful season be with you and your loved ones throughout the
holidays and in the new year to come. Merry Christmas, Happy New
Year and God bless you all.
