Abalinx 25 December 2017 Peter Adamis
We of the Adamis family wish one all a very Merry Christmas and hope that 2018 brings forth much joy, laughter, good health, prosperity, good will and above all love to everyone. I must thank my lovely wife once again for this year’s preparation and No 1 son David for the garden.

This year we have Australia, United States, Canada, Greece, Denmark and South Korea at the dinner table. We welcome the new members to the family and wish them all a warm welcome. Christmas Dinner is for this evening. Our best wishes are extended to our friends and relatives residing in all of the above countries and may all good things come to them.
To friends on social media, may this be a time of good cheer and hope one day we all meet in person. To my military, community, political, academic and those battling illness, we wish you well. Stay strong, fight the good fight and never give up in the face of adversity.
To my very dear and close friends and Adopted Aussie Uncles (You know who you are) may you live forever and I thank you for being there when called to arms. Today and for the rest of the year let us remember absent friends and those who made the transition from this life to another we know not. You are always with us and not forgotten.
To those bent on mischief and considering conducting iniquity upon your fellow man, put aside your anger and revenge and live a life of peace. For those of the Christian Faith, Remember to give thanks to the originator and why we celebrate Christmas. To the non-Christian believer, we wish you well and happiness. We all have a part to play in this world and how we contribute is a matter for each individual to make. Enjoy the festive season whatever it may mean to you.
2017 was laced with sadness with the passing of family friends and acquaintances and yet despite their passing, I have become the recipient of their memories and will not forget their contribution to making me who I am. Life as we know it can only be sustained by vigilance and with that vigilance comes responsibility.
