Profile America: Christmas Day

Monday, December 25th. Today is Christmas Day — a joyous religious observance for many, but for almost everyone, one of the happiest days of the year. Outside or indoors, whether in balmy or snowbound climates, children are busy trying out their shiny new treasures, ranging from traditional bikes to the latest high tech toys. Inside, others are busy with video games and other electronic marvels.

Many will have attended church services to honor the day. And in many of the 117 million households in America, holiday music, decorations and lights will be joined by the inviting aroma of a special dinner to be shared with family and friends.

The men and women of the U.S. Census Bureau across the nation wish you and your loved ones a peaceful and happy holiday.
