Patriotism During the Holiday Season
The year 2020 has seen many patriotic acts unfold. From our healthcare workers to military members, the acts of patriotism these individuals perform truly have no limit. The holiday season is the perfect time to acknowledge all patriots and lend a hand with patriotism in mind. From showing support for these patriots to embracing our true patriotic spirit, there are many ways to celebrate the holiday season this year.
Support Local Businesses
Local businesses are an essential framework of this country. Your neighbors are offering products and services through their local shops as they serve the community and try to make a living at the same time. This holiday season, and every season, show your support for your fellow Americans who are earning their living by ensuring the local community has everything they need in their daily lives.
Buy gifts from the local clothing stores in your town or purchase gift cards from the café down the street to give to loved ones this holiday season. When you do so, you not only give an excellent gift that’s sure to be adored but you’re supporting your neighbors and helping their business stay afloat during these uncertain times. You may even find quite a few veteran-owned businesses in your town and showing your support for this local business is a true show of patriotism.
Give a Donation to a Local VFW or Fire Department
Nothing says patriotism more than supporting those who are true patriots in the community. If you want to show your support and your patriotic spirit at the same time, give a donation to a local VFW to support those who have fought for our freedom. You can also donate to your local fire department to support the firefighters who are serving and protecting the community 24/7/365.
Decorate in Red, White, and Blue
If you’d like to let your patriotic light shine, decorate your home and property in red, white, and blue. From twinkling patriotic-themed lights to trees decorated in red, white, and blue ornaments, there are many ways to pull a patriotic theme together with ease this holiday season. Let everyone know you are proud to be an American and love your country.
Support the USO
The United Service Organizations (USO) is a not-for-profit organization that operates year-round to serve the nation’s military members and their families. To ensure the USO can provide for those who proudly and bravely serve this country, the organization operates on donations and help from volunteers. Individuals can donate to the USO, host or participate in fundraisers, and more to lend a hand. By supporting the USO, you can show your patriotism for the patriots who protect us.
Show Your Patriotism This Holiday Season
Whether you buy holiday gifts from a local, veteran-owned business or give the gift of a holiday donation to your local fire department, these patriotic acts are the gifts that keep on giving. Every day is a good day to show your patriotism, but this is especially true as we enjoy the holiday season.
