Jamaicaís leaders have used their Christmas messages this year to remind Jamaicans to do an act of kindness for others.

Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller is urging Jamaicans that as they give gifts they should be mindful of the poor and dispossessed among us.

She is urging persons to be a blessing to someone in need this Christmas by giving a hot meal, clothing, a word of cheer or visit the sick.

Opposition leader, Andrew Holness said regardless of our religious traditions, this is the time of year when we collectively reflect on the themes of peace, love and fellowship.

He said it is a time when we radiate the feelings of goodwill, friendliness and generosity to all.

Meanwhile, Governor General Sir Patrick Allen said Christmas is a time when we remind ourselves of how to be our brotherís keeper.

He has also given special recognition to religious, charitable or public institutions which are taking care of vulnerable citizens in childrenís homes, the aged and infirm, the abandoned and the marginalised.
