On days like today (Christmas Eve) I'm usually wrapped up (no, seriously) in holiday preparations. I'm baking pies with mom, or cleaning the house, or wrapping presents. But not everyone has this privilege. The Trade Union Congress collected data from 2010, that found that over 172,00 people in the U.S. work on December 25. They also estimate that number has gone up 78% in the past years. This card is for those individuals working on the holidays, away from their families and festivities.
Someone had to protect us from the bad guys while we sit in our homes drinking egg nog and open gifts.
Nurses and Doctors
Because accidents happen during the holidays too. And not everyone is healthy enough to be home.
Spending time away from your family during the holidays is hard. It's even harder in a war zone.
And to everyone else working on the holidays... Thank you for working and taking time away from your families. I hope you have a happy holiday despite the separation.
Are you or someone you love working on the holiday?
