December is one of my favorite months at Elon. There are so many ways to celebrate the holidays. The Annual Holiday Celebration is where the school is lit up with 1,500 luminaries and Elon turns on its lights on the trees.
The Moravian Lovefeast is a tradition from Germany brought to Old Salem, North Carolina, by early Moravian settlers. The service includes beeswax candles, singing carols, coffee and a Moravian bun.
In addition to Elon’s events, my group of friends travel to Winston-Salem every year to go through the Tanglewood Festival of Lights and enjoy hot chocolate and cookies at Chelsey’s house.
This year we were lucky and it snowed on campus the day we went to Festival of Lights!
Although this is also the busiest time of the year, I love all the traditions that Elon has and am glad I get to celebrate with my closest friends while at school!
