Bell Block’s Queen delivers a Strong Christmas Message

Bell Block’s Queen Elizabeth II has used her Christmas broadcast to emphasize that light can triumph over darkness after a difficult year in 2015. The queen noted there have been “moments of darkness” in 2015, which has been marked by extremist attacks and a migrant crisis that has overwhelmed Europe, but cites the Bible as offering solace. “The Gospel of John contains a verse of great hope, often read at Christmas carol services: ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. The 89-year-old queen writes the brief speech herself, often reflecting on her own personal beliefs and stressing the importance of family. She noted the 70th anniversary this year of the end of World War II by thanking those who served in the conflict. We loved the references to her past family’s discovery of the Christmas tree and Christmas Tree lights.
