Christmas—A Time for the Family

Dear Sir,

Christmas is a time for the family. Amidst the mass of domestic things which the mother has to prepare for this event, the Christmas message of “Peace on Earth, Good Will toward Men” , may tend to be forgotten or to recede into the background.

In these days it is easier to pose problems than to solve them; the one sure foundation from which we can build our hopes in this changing world is family life in the home. Denis Thatchermy husband and I wish you all a happy Christmas and a successful New Year.

(Mrs.) Margaret Thatcher. Prospective Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Finchley and Friern Barnet.
