A moment of celebration, community, solidarity and reflection.
At 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 19, 2021, step outside with others and light a candle or turn on lights, flashlights, headlamps or a lantern. Participate from your porch or take your light for a walk. Join family, friends and neighbors for a lighted walk through your community. Don’t know of anything happening locally? Organize your own event with friends and neighbors!
We have much to be grateful for, especially each other. Join us to:
Celebrate the return of the light
Express gratitude for family, friends, neighbors, frontline workers, teachers, businesses and more.
Remember all those who have experienced hardship or loss.
Look forward with fellow Alaskans toward a healthy future.
There’s no one way to do this. All we’re asking is that you step outside and shine a light. Take photos or videos and share them if you like on social media using the hashtag #WithYouAlaska.
