The lights are up, the snow is here and fall finals are stressing out the student body. It must be time for the holidays. Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza are right around the corner, which in turn means a month off from the stresses of college.
We encourage everyone to take this month to relax and spend some quality time with the people you enjoy.
The holidays are meant to be a special time of the year. They offer plenty to everyone, regardless of religion or beliefs. Hopefully, the holidays mean more than just gifts. They should be celebrated in their entirety, which means remembering the roots and traditions.
Whichever holiday you choose to celebrate, we wish it to be great.
But along with this joy and celebration, it also seems that the holidays and the winter season bring about accidents and other unfortunate events. We would encourage everyone to behave safely. While the holidays and the New Year are great reasons to party, it should be done responsibly.
To those who finished their first semester of college – congratulations. To the graduating seniors, good luck.
To everyone, use this time off wisely and remember to have as much fun as safely possible.
