Ms Sturgeon says: "We value very highly the contribution seasonal workers make throughout the year."
The first minsiter says the UK government's position on Brexit and immigration will make recruitment of seasonal workers harder.
Mr Mountain says police, ambulance, NHS and the armed forces should be thanked for what they do on our behalf.
He calls on the first minister to wish them a merry Christmas and she agrees, in the spirit of consensus.
She thanks everyyone that works in the emergency services, the hospitality sector and to keep our roads open over Christmas.
Ms Sturgeon wishes "everybody across the country a very happy Christmas."
The presiding officer wishes everyone "a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year".
The team at Holyrood Live and our colleagues in Glasgow would like to join in with that sentiment and wish you all best for the festive season and 2018.
