What’s going on in: December
We know that it is not easy, but let’s all pretend that December is not a month in which there are only Christmas carols, gifts, and family dinners. Yes, Christmas is fantastic and we all love the atmosphere. But we cannot ignore that the world does not stop and things continue to happen. So today we bring you a review of some significant days that you should take into account in your calendar even if All I want for Christmas is you continues playing in the background.
World AIDS Action Day – December 1
It was precisely so that it would not go unnoticed that it was decided to establish this day on December 1. Curiously, it is the first world day related to health in history, and it is not for less since it has been and is one of the most destructive epidemics in history. Many continue to confuse it with HIV, this being the first phase and not necessarily causing AIDS. That is why it is essential to communicate, disseminate and raise awareness.

Reporting. Information is the most potent weapon to curb any issue related to health (we have become experts in this in recent years). Because while advances arrive, doing our part is the only thing we can and must do. So any infographic, poster, or piece with this objective will greatly help.
For many years, this disease was stigmatized, marginalizing part of the population that suffered from it, which is why it is important to communicate diversity. Anyone is vulnerable to infection, and we must stop associating them with a specific social group.
International Day of Persons with Disabilities – December 3
It is precisely thanks to social movements and communication that this day has ceased to focus on the difficulties experienced by people with disabilities, to give importance to the development of facilities for their integration into society and more in-depth of the cases to normalize all the situations.

Sometimes, facing a difficult situation leads you to overcome yourself and destroy your own limits. This is the case of some people with disabilities that we have long associated with limitations, who have put themselves before themselves and have become examples of self-love. Sharing a session with some of these people and knowing their stories will be as useful as it is enriching.
Once again, diversity and information are key in communication on a day like this. The more disabilities are known, and the more examples of diverse people we have, the sooner we can reach their normalization.
International animal rights day – December 10
Mahatma Gandhi once said that a civilization can be judged by the way it treats animals. We agree. It is true that we are increasingly aware of the rights and respect that every being on this planet deserves, but we still have a lot to do and a lot of love to give them. That is why since 1997 events have been held in cities around the world to raise awareness of something so important. Even by having a Declaration of Animal Rights that can be summarized in four pillars: life, freedom, not being considered no one’s property and the right to be free from pain.

Remembering that this planet is both theirs and ours. The human being has tended to take advantage of his intellectual superiority to appropriate a place that belongs to us all. That is why it is necessary to remember that we share a home, and we must respect their space to respect them.
We still have a lot to learn and correct, but the new generations have the opportunity to grow up assuming that respect and love towards animals from the beginning. In addition, it is so easy to design each species as a cartoon that we are looking forward to seeing the cutest and most childish creativities reach the smallest of each house.
And many more that we left in the drawer! You see? Christmas is just one more brushstroke of everything to come this month.
