Holiday Traditions and New Year's Resolutions

It just wouldn’t be the holiday season without watching the Muppet Christmas Carol on Christmas Eve!- Corey Jay ‘12

“My new years resolution is to read for fun more often! And to use up part of my obscenely large yarn stash. And maybe to stop shaving my legs. If I hit 1/3 it will be a success!” - Ariel Bloomer ‘12

Every Christmas Eve, my family and I load into the car, play Christmas music on the radio, and drive around town to see all the Christmas lights. It was magical when I was a kid, and it is still one of my favorite things about Christmas! -Megan Lewis ‘12

“My family has a tradition to beat the post-holiday blues and procrastinate on taking down decorations. Every year on the day after Christmas, we go and spend the whole day at the movie theater watching all the movies that came out before Christmas that we didn’t get the chance to see. The people at the movie theater in town have actually started to expect us each year.” - Chelsea Thompson ‘14

My family would drive around drop off poinsetta plants on the doorsteps of family friends and my dad’s clients, going out of our way to look at Christmas lights. One house, legendary for its extravagant lights, even had live animals on a life-size nativity set...until they found out it was illegal. -Berenice Villela ‘12
