Christmas peace is proclaimed

Posted by
Jypyä Pop (Turku, Finland) on 25 December 2019 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

The text is read from the red cloth. Perhaps ten thousand people are listening.
The text is read on Christmas Eve at noon.

Tomorrow, God willing,
is the graceful celebration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour;
and a general Christmas peace is hereby declared, by advising
everyone to celebrate it with appropriate reverence
and to behave otherwise quietly and peacefully,
for he who breaks this peace and violates the peace of Christmas by any
illegal or improper behaviour shall under aggravating circumstances
be guilty and punished according to what the law and statutes prescribe
for each and every offence separately.
Finally, a joyous Christmas feast is wished to all inhabitants of the city.

That's a great proclamation. Is it read every Christmas Day? Merry Christmas.

ah, I wish it were as simple as proclaiming peace. Lets hope we make some progress toward it in 2020.

@Harry: It is a good wish and a goal. I hope the same, but day by day I always have more doubts about its realization.
