Happy Holidays - from Luxembourg, Liechtenstein and Us

"We live on an island of bliss, if you look around..." - Prince Hans-Adam II has given his traditional Christmas interview to 1 FL TV. The full video is available here. The Fürst basically speaks about the state of the world with everything that goes on politically and religiously. If you know any German, it's always very interesting to hear his views and I can much recommend it! Schöne Feiertage!

"Next to the many crisis, there were also positive developments", Grand Duke Henri reminded everyone in his Christmas speech, broadcasted by RTL last night, that with everything that is going on in the world, it's easy to forget all the positive things that are happening. With the next national elections coming up, the Grand Duke asked his fellow countrymen to refrain from political debates hitting beneath the belt going on in other countries. Wort conveniently offers a full translation of the speech, including one bit that everyone should keep in mind: "We are too often caught up in our own lives and forget about the essential parts. With deep emotions, I am thinking about those that are alone during the holidays. I think about the sick and those that feel excluded. Let us use these days to reach out to them. Let us help, where we can help. This will also benefit ourselves. Only through social solidarity can me master the sometimes difficult challenges of our times." Schéi Feierdeeg!

And with that and last but very certainly not least: Merry Christmas from Team Luxarazzi to all of you celebrating! Be merry and kind, we hope you are having a great couple of days with your loved ones.
