THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR
Monday, November 27, 2017
Celebration of Lights is a time where students can relax and enjoy the holiday spirit before everyone leaves for winter break. The entire SMU and surrounding communities gather for this joyous occasion to watch the famous Dallas Hall be lit with thousands of lights in all its wonder. Our program begins with hot cocoa and cider accompanied by warm cookies to comfort everyone amidst the cold December of Dallas. People proceed to gather on Dallas Hall Lawn and listen to carols performed by SMU students. SMU’s President, R. Gerald Turner, reads the Christmas Story from his own family Bible! Upon the conclusion of the Christmas Story, Silent Night ends the program with the lighting of SMU’s stunning Dallas Hall and its surrounding trees.
