"As we gather with family and friends this holiday, I ask all New Yorkers to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas - a season of giving and love.
I'd like to personally thank the generous individuals who have donated time or resources to charitable organizations and community initiatives so Christmas can be a little merrier for those less fortunate.
During this time of celebration and reflection, I hope you all have the opportunity to enjoy the company of loved ones near and far.
Please take a moment to embrace all the season has to offer, make memories your families will cherish for years to come and enjoy a peaceful holiday. On behalf of my entire family, I wish each of you a very Merry Christmas."
