This year, the event is particularly special as we wish Union Director Whit Hollis a fond farewell on his final day at the U and final Winter Wonderland. Please come by to celebrate the holidays and Hollis on his well-deserved retirement.

Previous years have highlighted the Festivus tradition, rooted in a 1997 “Seinfeld” episode, however, this year our theme is winter wonderland. The change in name comes after discussions to update the tradition and modernize for new generations. Many of the same Festivus traditions will be held and perhaps new traditions will arise.

The annual pickle contest will be held; the glorious pickle ornament will be hidden and the first one to find it wins a pair of movie tickets. Additionally, no celebration would be complete without food. Dining Services will be providing an amazing array of goodies throughout the event. There will be a new selection of food options and an incredibly tasty menu.

We sincerely hope that everyone throughout our campus community will be able to join.
