WASHINGTON, Dec. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 25: CHRISTMAS DAY
Profile America — Tuesday, December 25th. Today is Christmas Day — observing the birth of Jesus and one of the happiest days in the long calendar of the year. Outside, in conditions ranging from snow to warm sunshine, children are busy trying out their shiny new treasures, ranging from skateboards to bikes. Inside, others are busy with video games and other electronic marvels. Many of the two-thirds of adults who are members of Christian churches will have attended services to honor the day. And in many of the more than 117 million households in America, holiday music and lights will be joined by the inviting smells 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 joyous holiday.
