Web posted at: 8:17 a.m. EST (1317 GMT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- With first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton by his side, President Bill Clinton gave his Christmas address Thursday afternoon from the White House:

"On this holiest of holidays, Hillary and I wish you all a very, merry Christmas. This is a season of joy, time for friends and family to rejoice in one another's company, and in the magic of Christmas," Clinton said.

"This is also the season of peace. On behalf of all Americans, I'd like to send a special greeting to all the soldiers serving overseas. Thank you for the greatest gift of the season, for protecting our nation and safeguarding our blessings that we hold dear."

"Let us reflect on our hopes, our dreams and the gifts we can give to the future ... so that all children, no matter where they are from, can make their dreams come true," the first lady said, adding:

"From our family to yours, merry Christmas, happy new year and may God bless you all."
