“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”

December 2, 2010

Oh boy, is it ever beginning to look, sound, feel, and smell like Christmas!  If you thought our campus was beautiful before, just imagine it with white lights across the covered walkway, decorated trees in the grand halls, and decorated doors in the residence halls.  Just yesterday I had the surprising pleasure of walking to class through flurries of snow.  I paused in frony of Lewis Hall to watch snowflakes fall on the angels and arches of the building.  Walking through the social hall was a funny experience, for I got to watch as friends tried to ice skate across a slab of plastic for WOW.  Cough 1 resounded with Christmas tunes from the local radio station.  Even outside of Dominicks there was a friendly man with a fuzzy scarf ringing the familiar bell for a red Salvation Army bucket.  Ahh, the sights and sounds of the holidays…

Speaking of the sounds of Christmas, I would like to invite all of you to this year’s Lessons and Carols, a celebration of the birth of Christ through music.  This performance, arranged by DU’s very own Sr. Patty Gallagher, OP, is a collaboration of song, dance, and storytelling that will take place on the evening of Tuesday, December 7 at 5:00 p.m. in Rosary Chapel.  Imagine it… some of your favorite songs of the Advent and Christmas season plus some that you may never have heard.  Come and bring your Christmas spirit with you!

I hope you have a fantastic holiday season.  I understand how hectic these last weeks of the semester are, but a little bit of Christmas cheer has helped lighten my load.  What fun it is to Deck the Halls and sing about Jingle Bells while finishing up papers and studying for exams.  For those of you who need silence while you study, please excuse the Polar Express soundtrack that is playing from my radio and just tell me to turn it down.  I will gladly plug in my headphones and “Wish You A Merry Christmas” in silence.  Meanwhile, enjoy your family and religious traditions, whatever they may be.  I also look forward to hearing how everyone celebrates 2010 on December 31.  Blessings to all of you and to all a good night!
