The NYPD evicted the protesters from the park in November, although they were allowed to return without tents and other equipment.
Christmas Day began with a midnight prayer service in the park. Demonstrators also had breakfast there.
The demonstrators are also reading a 1967 speech by Martin Luther King. The speech expresses King’s opposition to the Vietnam War.
Other Christmas activities planned at Zuccotti Park include music and a poetry reading.
