December 21st ~ National Homeless Persons’ Remembrance Day

The Winter Holiday Season brings joy, peace, love, and laughter to many of us worldwide. Compassion for our fellow beings would urge us to share this good will with those less fortunate.

National Homeless Persons’ Remembrance Day is observed annually on the first day of winter. In the northern hemisphere, this is on or around December 21st (June 21st in the southern hemisphere). Known as Winter Solstice or midwinter, it is an astronomical phenomenon marking the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year.

Living on the streets is difficult enough in warm weather; but the harshness of winter claims many lives.

No manner of participation is too small, for kindness is not bound by the limitations of conscience.

  1. Tina, you touched my heart with this lovely post. We’re so busy this time of year with out-of-town guests, holiday parties and gift buying that we forget those that are less fortunate and need our help. Thanks for the reminder and for including our four legged friends as well. Love ya! ❤ xx

  2. Thank you for calling this to our attention. I did not know there was such a day, but *sigh* I think about all these folks and hope that they can find the help they need through these organizations, as well as others. Sending hugs!

  3. A timely post for all, Tina, and especially for us in Northern California where many homeless hop trains from back East to spend winters here. When I worked for the City, many efforts were made to help the homeless, by going so far as creating overnight warming centers for them to stay in, even with their pets. I also discovered one of my returning students is literally homeless and I am working with him to ensure he graduates. Merry Christmas to you, Miss Tina!

    1. I’m really happy to hear that the City provides for both the homeless and their companion animals, Terri. Bless you for helping your student. I’m sure you know the reward will far outweigh the effort. You are a kind and good soul, my friend ❤

  4. Hello Tina! I’m hosting a blog party and DG Kaye sent me over to your site because she thought I would appreciate this post. She was right, of course!

    I think this day speaks to our compassion and ability to DO something, as we are the only species who can knowingly and actively make a profound difference. We don’t do it nearly often enough, so it’s good to have special days like this to remind us!

    Thank you for this post!!
