YULE LOG 2012
Sunday, December 9th, Voorhees Chapel at 4:45 PM
Yule Log began in 1918 when the students, approaching their first winter holiday season, asked to illuminate a tree and burn a Yule Log in the foyer fireplace in College Hall. The students stood with candles on the beautiful winding staircase and sang Christmas carols. Today, held in Voorhees Chapel, the ceremony embraces a diversity of seasonal celebrations, cultures, religions and traditions. Just as they did ninety three years ago, our students will be holding candles, singing songs, and reading passages that highlight our Douglass community and the advent of the winter season.
Please join us at 4:45pm for this one hour ceremony in Voorhees Chapel, followed by a dessert reception held in the N.J.C. Lounge in the Douglass Campus Center. We hope that you, as an important part of the Douglass family, will attend with your special Douglass student!
