It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Hey there!

Happy December 1st! Holland had its first snowfall of the year today. The snow is absolutely gorgeous and the campus looks even prettier. I was so excited when I woke up this morning and saw snow. I bundled up with my boots, mittens, scarf, and winter coat. Winter is here. Here are some of my favorite things about the Christmas season:

  • Christmas lights
  • Christmas music
  • Snow
  • Hot chocolate
  • Warming up by the fireplace
  • Making snow angels
  • Red and green together
  • Candy canes
  • Peppermint flavored lattes at Starbucks

The past two nights I have had Student Congress meetings, and on Monday we set up the Christmas tree in Martha Miller. It was so much fun. Our Scott Hall representative, from Korea, had never set up a Christmas tree before so it was cool to see his reaction. I really like the diversity Hope has on Student Congress.

Well the first week back has been good so far. We decorated our room to prepare us for the Christmas season, and I must say I think it looks awesome!

Have a great week and enjoy the Christmas spirit!
