The Queen’s 2014 Broadcast

The video above is the annual Christmas Broadcast from Her Majesty, the Queen of New Zealand (and other countries), something I've also posted in previous years. This year she speaks about “reconciliation and forgiveness”, using the Christmas truce if 1914 as a focus.

Because I come from a republic, I’ve always been fascinated by the Queen’s annual broadcast. I know several of my fellow Americans who are, too. Ironically, though, I’m pretty much the only one in my NZ family who is.

Be that as it may, this year I didn’t see any of the broadcast on television; in most years I see at least part of it. Not that it matters, really, when it’s available online—lucky for me.

And that’s another Christmas tradition now on the “done” list.
