Nu'uuli American Samoa
Between Christmas and New Year there are many services celebrating the birth of Christ and new beginnings. In the first week of January there are prayer services every day in the early evening where district congregations combine to fill churches. People, individually and collectively ask openly ask for spiritual gifts for the new year.
