One of my favorite Messiah Christmas traditions is the annual Christmas dance, Christmas Tradition. The dance is located at the Hershey Lodge and encompasses a delicious dinner and a dance. The dinner is definitely a highlight because it’s a four course meal in a beautiful setting, complete with candlelight and even cloth napkins! The meal consists of a salad with chocolate vinaigrette dressing, your choice of three dishes (this year there is a vegetarian option, cocoa chicken, or Tuscany chicken), mashed potatoes and veggies, a scrumptious chocolate pyramid dessert, and tea or coffee. It’s such a treat from Lottie or the Union. Following dinner is a dance, which is always so much fun. If you’re not into dancing, it can be a great time to catch up with friends and just relax and enjoy yourself before a grueling weekend of studying for finals begins!
