Manchin Wishes West Virginians Merry Christmas And Happy Holidays

Charleston, WV – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today released the following statement wishing West Virginians Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

“On behalf of Gayle, myself and the entire Manchin family, we wish all West Virginians and Americans a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. During this season of giving and reflection, Gayle and I are reminded of the importance of family, the source of life’s greatest joys and deepest bonds. Thanks to the resiliency and innovation of the American people, our country has led the world in the creation of multiple safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines, allowing West Virginia families to safely gather together this holiday season. I encourage any West Virginian who has not received the COVID-19 vaccine and booster shot to protect themselves, their loved ones and their community by getting vaccinated.

“Despite the challenges we faced this year and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have so much to be grateful for. We are blessed to have a beautiful state to call home and the knowledge that we are truly a resilient, statewide community who looks out for each other during good times and bad. My parents taught me that if you can count your blessings, you can share your blessings. Gayle and I encourage all West Virginians to join us in praying for the safety of our fellow West Virginians, frontline workers, healthcare professionals, servicemembers and Veterans, and thanking them for their service to our nation. Let us also pray for peace, safety and a greater understanding of one another that brings our nation together. As this year comes to a close, let us all reflect on our many blessings and look forward to a healthy, happy and safe New Year.”
