Around this time of year, MC gets extra festive. We love Christmas here, and why shouldn't we?  After all, we are celebrating of our Savior's birth, so without further ado, here are some of our Christmas traditions.

Lighting of the Quad

Lighting of the Quad is a big deal at MC. Campus Activities Board work tirelessly to decorate the Quad with lights and Christmas trees. Every year, the students gather round to hear the Christmas story. This year Santa and a horse drawn carriage even made appearances.

Festival of Lights

If you want to hear some beautiful Christmas music, look no further than the Festival of Lights. Every year the MC Singers present a beautiful compilation of music that will remind of you of the true meaning of Christmas. If you want to listen, the Mississippi Public Broadcast (MPB) will be broadcasting the Festival on December 16th at 8 pm, December 17th at 7 pm, December `9th at 8 pm, December 24th at 7 pm and Sunday at December 25th at 5:30 pm and 11:30 pm.


The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

When you aren't laughing, you will be crying. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is another event that proclaims what's beautiful about this season: giving love to all.

Christmas Chapel

At the end of the semester, Chapel concludes with an optional Christmas service.


Wingard Home Dinner

The Wingard Home helps homeless families in the Jackson area, and every year, the MC Art Department partners with this worthwhile organization to provide a meal to the less fortunate. Santa evens shows up with presents. You can read more about the event here.


Clocktower Carols

While you are out walking across the newly decorated Quad, you may catch the tune of Silent Night drifting in the winter air. It's truly a special experience.

Angel Tree in the Caf

Giving is at the heart of Christmas, so every year, MC students are given the opportunity to make Christmas more special for children whose parents can't afford presents. It's a small way to live out Christmas.

Christmas truly is a magical time of year at MC. We hope your holidays are just as wonderful, and maybe one day you'll spend this wonderful time of year in this wonderful place.
