LINCOLN – Today, Governor Ricketts issued a statement in observance of Christmas which is celebrated on December 25, 2015.

“Susanne, the kids, and I wish all Nebraskans a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  If you have plans to travel, we encourage you to buckle up and to enjoy this time with your family and loved ones.
“As we gather over the holidays, we also think of the men and women serving our country around the world, and continue to pray for their safe return.”
The Governor plans to celebrate Christmas with extended family.
