Kjære alle sammen,

Så ble det ingen vanlig jul i år heller. Mange går inn i høytiden med skuffelse, savn og bekymring for fremtiden.

Jeg sender dere alle et varmt håp om at julehøytiden tross alt må bli preget av varme og omsorg for hverandre.

Det er igjen tid for å huske på alt det hver og én av oss kan gjøre

Ta en telefon til en du vet vil sette pris på det.

Send en hilsen til noen som trenger det.

Gå en tur med en du bryr deg om.

Vi har alle muligheter til å gjøre livet litt lysere for menneskene rundt oss.

Familien min og jeg ønsker hver og én av dere en riktig god jul!

English Translation

To all the people of Norway,

Christmas this year is once again not quite as we had foreseen. Many people are starting the holiday feeling disappointed, missing their families, and with deep concerns about what is to come.

It is my fervent hope for all of you that this Christmas season will nonetheless be a time of warmth and caring.

It is important to keep in mind all the things that each one of us can do:

Pick up the phone and call someone who wants to hear from you.

Send a message to someone who needs it.

Take a walk with someone you care about.

Each of us has the ability to make life a little brighter for those around us.

My family and I wish each and every one of you a very happy Christmas!
