Best Dressed Christmas Trees

Happy December, everybody!

I hope you’re having a marvelous day!  Things are going well here at Luther.  I saw Christmas at Luther yesterday, and it was a FANTASTIC show, as usual.  I am always amazed at how incredibly talented Luther people are.

Speaking of Christmas at Luther, Luther really does go all out for Christmas.  One of my favorite examples of this is the enormous number of decorated Christmas trees around campus.  I have counted fifteen so far, and I know I haven't seen them all!  That’s why, for today’s post, I will be featuring some of my favorite campus Christmas trees and awarding them with titles befitting their awesome.

So, without further ado, here are Luther’s 2015 Best Trees:

(1) Tallest Tree

Located outdoors, between the Union and Brandt Hall

How do they even get the lights on a tree that tall?

Everything is extra adorable in miniature!

(5) Most Homey

This tree in Sampson-Hoffland Laboratories is so cozy, and it's the most similar to the one my family put up at home after Thanksgiving.

I love the ornaments!

(6) Most Acute Angle

This tree in the CFL is seriously pointy.

Very pointy.

 (7) Most Creative

Preus Library made its own tree this year – out of books!  How cool is that?

Very festive.

The tree on the second floor of the Union, the tree in the Diversity Center, the tree outside of Farwell, the tree in the Student Activities Office, the tree outside the Union with the LED lights, and the other trees in the CFL are also BEAUTIFUL and receive honorable mention!  I just didn’t get pictures of all of them….

I hope you enjoyed seeing some my favorite trees at Luther this year!  They have definitely put me in a festive mood!  I love that Luther celebrates Christmas in so many ways!

I hope you are having a happy Yuletide season as well!  And now, I’m off to see a Christmas a cappella concert with friends, so I will figuratively see you later!

May I also give a shout-out to the amazing people who put reindeer antlers on their minivan? It totally made my day.
