President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama delivered their final Christmas address to the nation today and it’s all we can do to not burst into tears that they’re honestly, truly leaving office.
In the address, the first couple shared adorable moments, including a flashback to their first address (ah, memories!). Noting that he has enjoyed giving the addresses with his “best friend,” President Obama reflected on the last eight years, telling us, “The greatest gift that Michelle and I have received over the last eight years has been the honor of serving as your president and first lady.”
The president also spoke on the true meaning of Christmas, noting that his Christian faith has helped him tremendously over the last eight years.
“Tomorrow, for the final time as the First Family, we will join our fellow Christians around the world to rejoice in the birth of our Savior,” he said. “And as we retell His story from that Holy Night, we’ll also remember His eternal message, one of boundless love, compassion and hope.”
