When is National Roof Over Your Head Day? This holiday is always observed on December 3
Today is National Roof Over Your Head Day. This December 3 holiday is a day of appreciation for the things we have, starting with the roof over our heads. Even if it’s not a great house, as long as the roof keeps you warm and dry, you are better off than those who are homeless in the world.
For most of us, a roof over our heads signifies living in a house that protects us from the elements, keeping us warm, dry, and cozy. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky as you and I. There are many homeless people right here in our country. Some people live in a cardboard box on the street…… literally. There are millions of people around the world who live in poverty or disaster areas and do not have a home to keep them comfortable and safe.
