Nicola Sturgeon has revealed the winning design for this year’s Christmas card from the First Minister.
The winning entry was designed by ten-year-old Sophie Blackett from East Kilbride in South Lanarkshire.
On revealing the winning design the First Minister says the words written by Sophie ‘summed up the year very well’.
She said: “Congratulations to Sophie – her wonderful drawing will be on the front of my Christmas card this year. The words Sophie has written in the tree sum up the emotions of 2020 really well – and hopefully they’ll inspire everyone as we look forward to brighter times ahead.”
The card includes a drawing of a Christmas tree with a poem about the ups and downs of 2020.
It says: 2020, we cried, we clapped, we stayed at home, we baked, we home-schooled and painted rainbows, we stayed two-metres apart, we Zoomed, we locked down, we thanked our NHS and waved through windows, we did DIY, we wore masks, we lived in bubbles, we went on staycations, but most of all we made it through.”
The bottom of the card reads Merry Christmas, from a social distance.
