Merry Christmas from the Presidential Couple

President Andrzej Duda and the First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda

Dear Compatriots! On this unique and beautiful Christmas Eve, we would like to convey to you our Christmas wishes.


On Christmas, we share bread and a kind word. We offer each other gifts and convey our best wishes. May this atmosphere of joy and mutual kindness be present in your homes throughout the whole year.


On this special evening, we wish you accomplishment of all your plans: family ones and professional alike. May you experience closeness and warmth from all your relatives, friends, colleagues. So that we can jointly build the future founded on mutual understanding and respect, which are so urgently needed today.


On this special day, as we share the Christmas opłatek bread amongst our nearest and dearest, as we convey our best wishes to each other, we forget about what divides us. Let us think about our Home Country in terms of one big family. As in any family, also in this one, there are trying moments and sometimes unnecessary words are spoken. But when Christmas Eve comes, love and concord prevail, as we rise above differing views and opinions. And then we feel how much we need each other and how much we need to stay together.


Ladies and Gentlemen, let us not forget about the ones who in greatest need. Perhaps somewhere in our neighourhood, a person may live who needs our assistance or simply a kind word from us. Let us also remember about those who are ill, homeless and lonely. Through a single small gesture, each of us may help to alleviate their situation in life.

Ladies and Gentlemen! All the best! May you have peaceful Christmas!

May you have peaceful,  joyous family Christmas! May the Holy Infant raise His Hand now and bless our dear Home Country, With good counsel and well-being, may He bolster it with the strength of His power!
