Dear Fellow New Yorkers,
Christmas is a time for us to gather with our family and friends, appreciate the blessings in our lives and celebrate the spirit of the season.
This holiday week is also an opportunity for us to pause and reflect on the Christmas message of peace, love and hope for the world around us. I encourage us to give back to communities in need across New York, and keep in our thoughts the brave service men and women who sacrifice the comforts we take for granted to defend our freedom and security.
From my family to yours, Merry Christmas.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
