A positively sparkling time of year
Admit it. When the lights twinkle around the Quad, luminaria glow to light the path to Wait Chapel and the massive holiday tree outside Reynolda Hall exudes that fresh forest scent, you long to be back here. Minus the exams.
The holiday traditions bring students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community together in ways that strengthen our bonds on campus and off. The largest single lovefeast in North America happens here. The Messiah Moravian Church Band strikes up the brass, the choir leads us in sacred carols and the candles are lit one by one, illuminating our common bonds. You will always be welcomed back to your Wake Forest home, but for those who missed the celebrations, this link offers an array of elegant black-and-white photographs by University photographer Ken Bennett and a short video that I hope will bring back your own December memories from around the Quad.
Wishing you blessings of the season,
