President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have delivered their final Christmas message to the nation from the White House and it’s giving us all the feels.
The nation’s first couple opened up about the idea of the holiday and how it connects to other religions.
“As we retell [the story of Jesus Christ] from that Holy Night, we’ll also remember his eternal message, one of boundless love, compassion and hope,” the president said.
Michelle Obama said,”Celebrating the holidays in the White House over these past eight years has been a true privilege. The idea that we are our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper. That we should treat others as we would want to be treated. And that we care for the sick… feed the hungry… and welcome the stranger… no matter where they come from, or how they practice their faith”.
“Those are values that help guide not just my family’s Christian faith, but that of Jewish Americans, and Muslim Americans; nonbelievers and Americans of all backgrounds. And no one better embodies that spirit of service than the men and women who wear our country’s uniform and their families,” Barack added.
