This year's Christmas preparations were marked by abundance and prosperity. Across far and wide department stores filled their warehouses and their shops. The early implementation of the three-year plan allowed us to meet the increased needs and demands of buyers. Through increased productivity and higher wages we could afford to purchase any goods and Christmas gifts. The last days of the year we celebrate in the spirit of further tenacious struggle for a happy future for our children, for peace, the greatest treasure of ordinary people around the world.
