It was only three posts ago when I wrote about Healthy Halloween, and now it’s already December? My goodness, how time flies! Michael Buble’s singing “Let it Snow!” on 97.1, wreaths and lights now decorate neighborhoods, ugly Christmas sweaters are on sale, Secret Santa gift exchanges have begun, and holiday card worthy pics are being posted on the ‘gram.
This is my absolute favorite time of the year. For me, personally, it’s all about high spirits and sharing magical moments with family and friends. But it’s also about giving! Speaking of giving (you saw this coming), USG is hosting its first ever Holiday Bazaar next week on Tuesday, December 6 from 11am to 1pm by the SAS Suite in Building III.
Get excited! There’ll be scary ghost stories and tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago… Just kidding, there won’t be any of that. But there will be vendors, holiday music, and free hot chocolate! A table will also be set up for holiday gift wrapping in exchange for a small donation. ‘Cause let’s be honest, ain’t nobody got time for wrapping their own gifts while studying for finals!
APhA-ASP Operation OTC Medicine Safety will be selling DELICIOUS chicken and pork steamed bao buns (made with love by my mom and me). Other student organizations will be selling holiday photos, apparel, mugs with hot chocolate, and holiday themed arts and crafts. The proceeds for some of these items will go directly to charities like St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital. Raffle tickets will also be on sale to benefit the USG Scholarship Fund.
Most of us are now busy, busy, busy with projects, presentations, papers, and exams. It’s a crazy time at USG! But we can do it, only a few more days till winter vacation. Best of luck on those final assignments and see you next week at the Holiday Bazaar! Don’t forget to come say hello — I’ll be the one with the Santa hat and holiday cheer!
