CHRISTMAS is coming up fast and Celtic kicked off this year’s festivities with the launch of their seasonal film for 2022.
The champions send a worldwide message in their latest mesmerising offering on video.
The club convey the greetings of a special time of year with this heartfelt delivery on Celtic FC YouTube:
“While Celtic supporters around the world prepare to celebrate, we recognise that this is also a difficult time for many families in our local communities and around the world.
“We hope the latest Celtic Christmas film will provide some festive cheer as the Club and Celtic FC Foundation come together to ‘Share The Magic’ this Christmas.
GREEN CHRISTMAS…Ange Postecoglou shares the joy with the schoolchildren.
“This year’s Christmas film captures the essence of kindness during the festive period, with Celtic FC Foundation staff and volunteers featured, alongside the first-team, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou and stars of Celtic FC Women’s team too, working together to ensure local school kids from Glasgow’s East End community enjoy an extra magical Christmas celebration at Celtic Park.
“Every good deed and act of kindness can make a big difference and Celtic’s ‘Share The Magic’ campaign exemplifies this, capturing scenes of excitement and joy at one of the many annual children’s Christmas parties hosted by the Foundation at Celtic Park.
“These parties are just one of the many ways in which Celtic FC Foundation offer their support to add a little sparkle to this time of year for those in the local community.
“As well as kicking-off the campaign with a donation of £10,000, by bringing together the club’s traditional Christmas film and Celtic FC Foundation’s Christmas Appeal, we aim to bolster the fundraising efforts of the club’s charitable arm with your support.
RHAPSODY IN GREEN…Celtic Park gets the special video treatment for Christmas.
“We’ve created a very special Walfrid’s Wishlist and every festive item you purchase for gifting to loved ones from this special collection, available in-stores and online, will result in Celtic retail making a direct contribution of financial support to Celtic FC Foundation’s Christmas Appeal.
“We hope the Foundation’s appeal will be able to help more people than ever this year and you can help ‘Share The Magic’ to support those in need, both locally and further afield, simply by shopping with Celtic this Christmas.
“We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who was involved in the filming of our Christmas film and in particular, the children and teachers of St Anne’s Primary School who are the stars this year.
“Together, let’s #ShareTheMagic this Christmas!”
So, the ball is at your feet, folks. We know you won’t pass up the opportunity to hit the target.
Season’s greetings to one and all.
