Month Calendar For United States Holidays December 2014

  • National Impaired Driving Prevention Month[fed-ob][pro]: This is a month to raise awareness about the need to keep our streets and highways safe. Together, our actions can save lives. According to the Presidential Proclamation,
    All Americans deserve to live long and full lives, and every child should have the chance to seize his or her future. But throughout our Nation, too many lives are tragically cut short in traffic crashes involving drunk, drugged, or distracted driving. Impaired driving not only puts the driver at risk -- it threatens the lives of passengers and all others who share the road, and every year it causes the deaths of thousands of loved ones. This month, and especially during the holiday season, we dedicate ourselves to driving safely and responsibly, and to promoting these behaviors among our family and friends.

    The following is a compilation of American federal holidays, federal observances, state holidays and other common patriotic and national observances and commemorations that apply to the United States during december 2014:
