ROYAL LIVE: The Queen’s Christmas Speech
The Queen’s Speech Christmas Day, 2021 Transcript
Although it’s a time of great happiness and good cheer for many, Christmas can be hard for those who have lost loved ones. This year, especially, I understand why.
But for me, in the months since the death of my beloved Philip, I’ have drawn great comfort from the warmth and affection of the many tributes to his life and work – from around the nation, the Commonwealth and the world.
His sense of service, intellectual curiosity and capacity to squeeze fun out of any situation – were all irrepressible. That mischievous, inquiring twinkle was as bright at the end as when I first set eyes on him.
But life, of course, consists of final partings as well as first meetings – and as much as I and my family miss him, I do know he would want us to enjoy Christmas. We felt his presence as we, like millions around the world, readied ourselves for Christmas.
While COVID again means we can’t celebrate quite as the way we may have wished, we can still enjoy the many happy traditions. Be it the singing of carols – as long as the tune is well-known – decorating the tree, giving and receiving presents, or watching a favorite film where we already know the ending, it’s no surprise that families so often treasure their Christmas routines.
We see our own children and their families embrace the roles, traditions and values that mean so much to us, as these are passed on from one generation to the next sometimes being updated for changing times. I see it in my own family and it is a source of great happiness.
Prince Philip was always mindful of this sense of passing the baton. That’s why he created The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, which offers young people throughout the Commonwealth and beyond the chance of exploration and adventure. It remains an astonishing success grounded in his faith in the future.
He was also an early champion of taking seriously our stewardship of the environment, and I am proud beyond words that his pioneering work has been taken on and magnified by our eldest son Charles and his eldest son William – admirably supported by Camilla and Catherine – most recently at the COP climate change summit in Glasgow.
Next summer, we look forward to the Commonwealth games. The baton is currently traveling the length and breadth of the Commonwealth, heading in towards Birmingham, a beacon of hope on its journey. It will be a chance to celebrate the achievements of athletes and the coming-together of like-minded nations.
And February, just six weeks from now, will see the start of my Platinum Jubilee year, which I hope will be an opportunity for people everywhere to enjoy a sense of togetherness, a chance to give thanks for the enormous changes of the last 70 years – social, scientific and cultural – and also to look ahead with confidence.
I’m sure someone somewhere today will remark that Christmas is a time for children. It’s an engaging truth but only half the story. Perhaps it’s truer to say that Christmas can speak to the child within us all.
Adults, when weighed down with worries, sometimes fail to see the joy in simple things while children do not.
And for me and my family, even with one familiar laugh missing this year, there will be joy in Christmas, as we have the change to reminisce, and see anew the wonders of the festive season through the eyes of our younger children, of whom we had been delighted to welcome four more this year.
They teach us all a lesson – just as the Christmas story does – that in the birth of a child, there is a new dawn with endless potential.
It is this simplicity of the Christmas story that makes it so universally appealing — simple happenings that form the starting point of the lifetime of Jesus — a man whose teachings have been handed down from generation to generation, and have been the bedrock of my faith.
His birth marked a new beginning.
As the carol says: ‘The hopes and fears of all of the years are met in thee tonight.’
I wish you all a very Happy Christmas.
Her Majesty The Queen
Premier’s statement on Christmas Day
Victoria Friday, December 24, 2021 7:30 AM
Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement marking Christmas Day:
“Tomorrow, Dec. 25, is a day for Christians around the world to celebrate the birth of their Saviour, Jesus Christ, and his message of peace, joy and love.
“These values will help guide us through another holiday season in which we must all take steps to avoid spreading COVID-19. Like you, I will be enjoying time with family and friends in small, safe groups or through the marvels of virtual communication.
“I encourage everyone to celebrate safely over the Christmas holiday, so we can look forward to coming together for many more celebrations in the weeks and months to come.
“While it has been a difficult year for our province, there is still much to be grateful for as British Columbians. I encourage everyone to reflect on the blessings in your life and the season’s values of kindness, charity and generosity.
“To all who celebrate, I wish you a safe and happy holiday, and a very Merry Christmas.”

Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on Christmas Day
“Merry Christmas, Canada! Today, our family joins Christians across the country and around the world to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and his message of compassion, love, and selflessness.
“As a family, we usually gather for meals with loved ones, exchange gifts around the Christmas tree, and most importantly, create memories together. This is also a day to reflect on the many contributions that Christians have made – and continue to make – to communities across the country. This holiday season, like last year’s, we continue to deal with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, we have seen Canadians continue to meet these challenging times with generosity, kindness, and hope, and find different ways to celebrate, help those in need, and give back to the community.
“Today, we look back on the challenges of this past year and reflect on the progress we have made. This year marked the beginning of the most extensive immunization campaign in our country’s history. As we finish the fight against COVID-19, let’s continue to follow public health guidance as we celebrate Christmas, so we can keep our communities and our front-line heroes safe. For those who have not already done so, I encourage all eligible Canadians to get their vaccines and booster shots.
“During the holidays, we also take time to remember our brave Canadian Armed Forces members serving here in Canada and overseas. They continue to make extraordinary sacrifices to keep us safe, defend our values, and protect our way of life.
“From our family to yours, Hadrien, Ella-Grace, Xavier, Sophie, and I wish you happiness, health, and peace this holiday season. Merry Christmas and all the best in 2022.”

First up what is Christmas
Why is Christmas Day on the 25th December?
Christmas is celebrated to remember the birth of of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe is the Son of God.
The name ‘Christmas’ comes from the Mass of Christ (or Jesus). A Mass service (which is sometimes called Communion or Eucharist) is where Christians remember that Jesus died for us and then came back to life. The ‘Christ-Mass’ service was the only one that was allowed to take place after sunset (and before sunrise the next day), so people had it at Midnight! So we get the name Christ-Mass, shortened to Christmas.
Christmas is now celebrated by people around the world, whether they are Christians or not. It’s a time when family and friends come together and remember the good things they have. People, and especially children, also like Christmas as it’s a time when you give and receive presents!
