On behalf of the team at the Cobram Courier, I wish you and your family a very happy and safe Christmas.
This time of year is a fabulous opportunity to reunite with family and friends and surround yourself with your loved ones, reflecting on another year that has passed.
It’s also a time to be vigilant on our roads and heed the continued warnings from our emergency service personnel.
Our hearts go out to the families who will mark this Christmas with one less person at the table.
I’m not shy to admit I’m not the biggest fan of Christmas time.
But this year it’s different — spending time with my two little cousins, aged one and three, in the lead-up to the big day has reminded me what Christmas is all about.
Their excitement is infectious.
They are counting down the days until Santa visits their place and decorating Christmas trees and singing carols means that festive spirit is really rubbing off.
Our community has celebrated Christmas together — and I’ve had the privilege to join some of these celebrations, including our Carols by Candlelight in Barooga at the weekend.
There are some beautifully decorated homes in our towns, and I encourage people to take a drive to look at all the beautiful Christmas lights and appreciate the hard work that goes into these displays.
My family will celebrate Christmas at home on our farm near Horsham, and despite our gathering being just the four of us we’ll make it special — because we’ll be together again for a few days.
From myself, Matt, Randall, Tim and Paige — have a happy and safe festive season.
