As I was watching this year’s holiday video, it occurred to me that one of the wonderful things about the holidays is that so much of it is familiar no matter where you are. I have lived in California, Texas, Pennsylvania, Mississippi and several more places, and the holidays were a big part of making each one feel like home.
We know that Longwood could never replace your student’s family home, but we have tried to give your Lancer that universal holiday feeling of lifted spirits and community here in the weeks leading up to the winter break.
You can see some of the ways we do that in the holiday video. In case you missed it, I’ve included a link below, along with a link to a few photos from the Holiday Dinner, an annual music scholarship fundraiser that features entertainment by a variety of student vocal and instrumental ensembles.
As your student makes their way home, we wish you all the happiness that comes with being together at this special time of year.
