Ilyumzhinov congratulates Orthodox Christians on Christmas

I wish you all Merry Christmas! This bright holiday gives us happiness and hope, the feeling of a great miracle, the everlasting light of faith and fills the hearts with joy and contentment.

Christmas is a time of beautiful thoughts and love of neighbour, a time of good deeds and care for all who need help.

Let us stop and look at the starry sky. Somewhere, very far from Earth, a Christmas star was lit. Let its soft and gentle light illuminate the way for everyone and bring hope that everything will change for the better. Let the Star of Bethlehem light every home! May happiness and love stay forever at every home!

I wish you the true love of loved ones, joyful news and long-awaited meetings. I wish everyone who celebrates Christmas happiness, peace, success in good deeds and undertakings. Happy Christmas!
