DECEMBER 3, 2018 | NATIONAL ROOF OVER YOUR HEAD DAY
NATIONAL ROOF OVER YOUR HEAD DAY
Each year on December 3rd National Roof Over Your Head Day is observed across the United States.
National Roof Over Your Head Day was created as a day to be thankful for what you have, starting with the roof over your head. There are many things that we have that we take for granted and do not stop to appreciate how fortunate we are for having them.
All across our nation, there are many that do not have the things that necessary to everyday life. They may lack a roof over their heads, enough food to eat or clothes to wear. For those who have those bare necessities, it may be insufficient.
National Roof Over Your Head Day is about remembering to appreciate what you have. This day follows closely after Thanksgiving, a day to be thankful. So just like Thanksgiving, be thankful for what you do have and always remember, that it is a better feeling than worrying about what you do not have.
HOW TO OBSERVE
