Primarily observed on December 25, Christmas is both a religious and cultural celebration. For most Christians, this holiday celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ and follows the season of Advent (which begins four Sundays before). Many non-Christians also celebrate this holiday as a time for gathering with family, giving gifts to each other (or opening presents from Santa, delivered the night before), and feasting. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many countries.
We’re grateful to our community for participating in our Holiday Gift Project and made it possible for S:US to give personalized gifts to individuals we serve— adults with an intellectual/developmental disability; children living in our family shelters, domestic violence shelters, or supportive housing; seniors with a disability; or veterans who need assistance. Thank you for spreading the holiday joy.
Best wishes for a joyous Christmas filled with love, happiness, and peace!
