As we round out the year, December observances and holidays include Human Rights and Human Solidarity Days, the last few days of Hanukkah, dozens of religious celebrations, and the beginning of Kwanzaa.
Our multicultural calendar for December allows you the opportunity to celebrate seasonal occasions related to the Jewish American, Roman Catholic, Indian American, and Black American communities.
With awareness of how December expresses various cultures, religions, and traditions, organizations can observe these diverse occasions to foster inclusion.
The last month of the year also provides opportunities for organizations to give back as December 5th is International Volunteer Day.
