Yule Log

Yule Log

Sunday, December 3, 2017 -
4:45pm to 7:00pm

You are cordially invited to join us on Sunday, December 3, 2017 for the One Hundred Yule Log.  This tradition began in December 1918 when the students, approaching their first winter holiday season, asked to illuminate a tree and burn a yule log in College Hall's foyer fireplace. The students stood with candles on the beautiful curved staircase in College Hall and sang Christmas carols. Today, held in Voorhees Chapel, Yule Log embraces a variety of seasonal celebrations and many cultures, religions, and traditions. Just as the Douglass women did 90 years ago, our students will hold candles, sing songs, and read passages that highlight the Douglass community and the advent of the winter season.

Please join us at 4:45 pm for this one hour ceremony in Voorhees Chapel, followed by a dessert reception held in the NJC Lounge in the Douglass Student Center. As an important part of the Douglass family, we hope you will attend. NO TICKETS REQUIRED.

Location: Voorhees Chapel, 5 Chapel Drive.

Time: 4:45 p.m. Doors open at 4:00 p.m.

Parking is easily accessible in Lot 70 and the Douglass parking deck behind the Douglass Student Center (100 George St) on Lipman Drive (directly off of Nichol Avenue.)

Handicap parking is available in the circle around Voorhees Chapel.
