Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller has acknowledged that many Jamaicans are finding it hard to see the festivity in the Christmas season against the backdrop of the country’s difficult economic situation.

In her Christmas message, she notes that it has been a rough year for all but say it should not blind Jamaicans to the virtue and meaning of Christmas.

She notes that Christmas is a time to reflect on the year past and give thanks that we survived, and to look forward with hope, that while our condition now is challenging, things will get better.

Simpson Miller is also urging Jamaicans to look out for all our children during the Christmas season.

She says Jamaicans should recommit to their welfare, their proper nurturing and their total development and spend quality time with them.
