  • What’s the Deal with December’s Calendar?
  • December is the twelfth and final month of the year, with 31 days. Depending on where you live, schools might be wrapping up for winter break, and there’s a good chance you’ll see some end-of-year work deadlines looming. But don’t let that stress you out! December is also a time to relax, spend time with loved ones, and celebrate the season.

  • What Holidays and Observances Are Happening in December 2024?
  • December’s calendar is a delightful mix of well-known holidays and some lesser-known gems. Here are a few highlights:

    Early December: December starts with World AIDS Day (December 1st), a day to raise awareness about the fight against HIV/AIDS. There might be local events or campaigns you can participate in. A few days later, on December 5th, we celebrate International Volunteer Day, a perfect opportunity to give back to your community.

  • Mid-December: As we move closer to the holidays, things get festive! Keep an eye out for fun observances like Hanukkah (exact dates vary each year), a Jewish eight-day festival of lights.
  • Let the Festivities Begin!: The latter half of December is all about the big ones. Christmas (December 25th) is the main event for many, with traditions like gift-giving, caroling, and delicious feasts. Don’t forget about Kwanzaa (December 26th – January 1st), a seven-day African American holiday celebrating family, community, and harvest.
