PHILIPSBURG – The United People’s Party (UP) family, Leader and board extends Christmas greetings to the people of Sint Maarten and visitors on the eve of Christmas 2015.
“We must remember those in need this festive season as families and friends join together. There has been much tragedy around the world this year, and we must remember the victims and pray for their families during this special time of the year.
“There have been millions of people around the world leaving violence for the fear of their lives, seeking a better way of life. Christmas is a time to give thanks and show appreciation to those within the family and the community. We look at our Police Officers and other law enforcement agencies, the Ambulance Service, Fire Department, Voluntary Corps of Sint Maarten, as well as all the volunteers from civic organizations in our community who do great work throughout the year and every year.
“As families and friends come together for this time of celebration; the exchange of gifts; and lots of eating and drinking; it lifts the human spirit and reveals the magic of the season. During this celebratory period, the joy of the season brings out the best in most of us.
“The UP family wish you all the compliments for the season. May Christmas be filled with peace, joy and laughter, and most of all, to all Sint Maarteners and to all our visitors who are spending the Christmas holidays with us, may all our hearts be filled with hope and love. Feliz Navidad,” Member of Parliament and Leader of the UP Party Theodore Heyliger said on Thursday.
