Unusual Christmas Greeting — President Zeman Wishes the Czechs a “Dangerous Life”
December 25, 2016
The Czech president, Miloš Zeman, is wishing the people of his land “a dangerous life full of risks and battles.”
Just traditionally “wishing health, happiness and a long life would be too unoriginal and just a phrase,” is how the head of state on Sunday on radio Frekvence 1 explained his unusual New Year’s wish.
Naturally, he wished his people victories and successes, said Zeman. “But if they fight no battles, they can not win and be successful,” explained the president, whose controversial comments constantly supply the flammable matter for Czech politics.
