To all my wonderful friends here, may I wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas!
In my family, one of the long-standing traditions of this celebratory day, regardless of your faith or beliefs, is to give thanks for the great gift of good friends. I appreciate each and every one of you, for your kindness to me and your help; for your humor and for your unfailing courtesy and goodness.
I count myself proud and blessed to have so many of you as friends.
May I wish each of you health, happiness, prosperity -- and above all, peace.
All my best,
