The Festival of Trees

A 38-year holiday tradition of charity described as a “Gift of Love,” the Festival of Trees has become a Utah institution. With more than 800 trees on display and nearly 8,000 attendees, the festival is the world’s largest display of decorated Christmas trees as well as centerpieces, wreaths, gingerbread creations and backyard playhouses.

Battle the Cold

Parking in the dead of winter: the task is enough to keep you dreading the moment your alarm clock sounds, interrupting the serenity of your sleep. Sadly, you cannot hibernate. You must emerge from the warmth of your covers and face the bitter cold as a warrior.

Exiled to the indoors

Winter comes bearing gifts of relaxation, snow-capped mountains, and a break from the school load. But, it also brings the type of chilling weather that exiles one to the indoors. These are days in which sleet defaces the slopes at the resort, when the roads become crystallized with ice — and it is realized that the closet is sans suitable warm clothing.

Get your ugly on

The holiday season is upon us, but don’t get too cozy. The holidays are filled with not-so-fond memories of unsightly holiday sweaters, family-portrait Christmas card sessions, and the nag, “You’ll shoot your eye out!” As college students, it is our duty to take the lemons of the season and make lemonade.

How to get into the Holiday spirit

This holiday is meant to be a time of peace, love and goodwill to all. It is a time to give back, to spend time with loved ones. However, in more recent years, things seem to have made a turn for the worst. Stress is the word of the season — it is what most people are feeling this time of year.

Season of scarves

Scarves are the easiest way to accessorize. Take a long strip of fabric of any kind, wrap it around your neck in any of various ways, and you’ve pulled together your outfit. One of the best things about scarves is that with basic skills and a bit of patience, you can most likely make a scarf that will fit your needs exactly.
