About this Guide
Many in our communities are changing their holiday traditions and staying home this December. This guide was created to provide entertaining and informative resources about the history and magic of December holidays no matter what or how we choose to celebrate. There are also many links to community holiday resources. We hope all of our Highline College community members have a happy and safe holiday season.
