Come out to see the Department of Theatre and Dance production of Blue Christmas! Although I am a dance minor and am slightly biased, you should DEFINITELY take this opportunity to see the show. It’s a unique take on the holidays and can soothe heavy hearts at a time that may not seem as joyous to them.

IMPORTANT FOR COMMUTERS!

November, the time when no one knows if they should start to play Christmas music. If you are one who does enjoy some gentle, jingling bells at this time (silver or any other festive colour), go right ahead. However, I  will not Hear What Your Hear because it’s not quite a White Christmas for this ninth lady dancing. Thanksgiving is still a ways away, and I’m excited about it! #CatesFavHoliday If you see me in the hallways or walking on campus, please promptly offer me a pecan pie and I will immediately give you twenty dollars.
