CHARLESTON, W.Va. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today issued a video message wishing West Virginians a Merry Christmas.

Full video transcript included below:

“Merry Christmas, West Virginia. As you gather with family and loved ones to enjoy the traditions and festivities, I hope this is a time of great joy, peace, and happiness.

“I encourage you to pause and reflect on what's most important during this Christmas season. Whether you are at home or traveling to see those who matter most, let's come together and celebrate the blessings that we have and renew our hope for a bright future and a new year ahead. 

“Let's also remember the brave men and women serving overseas, first responders and law enforcement officers, and our medical professionals who are unable to spend these special holidays with their loved ones because of their selfless service to all of us.

“From my family to yours, Merry Christmas. May your days be merry and bright, and may the year ahead be full of blessings for you and your family.”
