Christmas is a Big Deal at Liberty

November 30, 2011

Something that a lot of people don’t know about me is that I absolutely LOVE the Christmas season. In our family we have a rule that you have to abstain from everything Christmas related until after Thanksgiving Day because otherwise we would celebrate the season all year long! The day after thanksgiving this year, I immediately made my Christmas playlist and it has been on repeat all the time.  When I got back to campus on Sunday after break, we drove onto campus and it looked like a winter wonderland because all of the trees were covered in lights!

Starting on Monday, Liberty began the festivities to celebrate the Christmas season. In Convocation Johnnie Moore announced that on campus, Christmas is a big deal and then told us about all the different events coming up. This Monday we had the second annual Christmas in Lights celebration where they lit up the 30 ft. tree in front of Demoss Hall. In the next two weeks we have a lot more events coming up and they definitely help to relieve stress during the last two weeks of school.

Christmas Events:

  1. Vines Center Movie Night –Starting at 8:00 pm December 2nd, Elf and Home Alone will be showing in the Vines Center with FREE popcorn.
