Yule Log

Yule Log

Sunday, December 08 2019 | 4:45 PM - Location: Voorhees Chapel

Please join us on Sunday, December 8, 2019 for our Annual Yule Log celebration. The oldest and most cherished tradition at Douglass, Yule Log celebrates the advent of winter and embraces the diversity of our seasonal celebrations.

The annual Yule Log ceremony is rooted in a tradition that began December 1918 when the first Douglass class gathered in College Hall. Standing with candles on the beautiful winding staircase, the students sang carols while a yule log burned in the fireplace. Today, the Yule Log is held in Voorhees Chapel and celebrates our beautiful array of cultures, religions, and traditions.

Our students will be holding candles, singing songs, and reading passages that highlight our Douglass community and the arrival of the winter season. 

The first 100 attendees will receive a free gift! Following the ceremony in Voorhees Chapel, everyone is invited to the Kathleen W. Ludwig Global Village Living Learning Center for a dessert reception.
