I wish all my fellow members of parliament, our staff and everyone in Holt a joyous and merry Christmas. Christmas is a time for love, compassion and the spreading of goodwill. It is a time to connect with loved ones, cherish the moments that matter and extend a helping hand to those in need. It is also a time to remember the hardworking individuals who keep our communities running, like emergency services staff and volunteers, healthcare workers, and those in retail and fast food. These dedicated workers work tirelessly to serve us, often during the busiest times of the year, ensuring that we are safe and happy. During this season of giving I encourage everyone to show kindness and appreciation to these essential workers. A simple smile, a word of gratitude or even just a patient attitude can make a significant difference to someone who may be feeling overwhelmed or unappreciated.

May this Christmas bring you peace, joy and an abundance of love—and lots of gifts! I would like to wish everyone in Holt and across Australia a happy, safe and wonderful Christmas. God bless you all.
