We want to take you on a most magical, nostalgic, Christmas-y journey. Think about your favorite Christmas movie – you know, the one you used to watch on Christmas Eve with your family right before you set out cookies & milk for Santa. Okay, do you have it? Now… put yourself IN that movie! Are you there? Great, let’s begin…

I imagine some of you were taken here… To a big city as a giant adult elf…

Or to that time when you asked for this, but then Ralphie ruined it for everyone…

…and for some of you, this is as real as it gets when you think about your own family Christmas gatherings…

Which is why you wish you were this kid on Christmas Day…

As you enter the Vines Center, we hope to take you back to that same magical place. No one said it better than Kris Kringle himself in It’s a Wonderful Life, “Oh, Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind.” And we’ll do everything we can to help you get into that frame of mind.

You know that Coffeehouse is the event of the semester, every semester, unless you’ve been living under a rock. It’s the best of the best at Liberty: bands, dancers, actors, and everything in between. We’ve narrowed down nearly 40 tryouts to showcase the absolute best acts for 2 hours of late night entertainment. And if you haven’t noticed yet, our theme this year is Christmas Coffeehouse: At the Movies. You’ll experience the goodies of holiday films across decades with thousands of your closest friends. Because as you know, “the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear”… and we’ve taken that very literally.

And for all the Scrooges out there, even the Grinch loses his Grinchiness at the sight of Christmas Coffeehouse. So for only $3, there’s no good reason for you to miss this show on Friday, December 5, starting at 11:30 p.m. in the Vines Center. Don’t forget to come dressed as your favorite Christmas character for a chance at getting on stage to win prizes - and even if you don’t get on stage, why not just dress up for holiday fun!

We hope to see you all on December 5… and have a Merry Christmas, you filthy animal.
