Christmas in the Union 2012
On Wednesday, December 5, 2012 the Book Shop celebrated the sights and sounds of Christmas in the Union. Sponsored by Student Activities Council Special Events Committee, Luther Book Shop, Luther Dining Services and PALs, this event is full of activities open to the public and free of charge.
Store wide discounts were offered all day by drawing for a Santa's cap. Christmas movies were shown and popcorn was served. Many names were added to Santa's Naughty or Nice List and winners were drawn for a red, plush Christmas bear.
The students' 3rd annual Ugly Christmas Sweater contest was held with voting all day until 4:30 p.m. There were 28 entries. The ugly sweater style show was followed by the announcement of the finalists and judging for the top three winners. First place went to Jacob Geis, second to Annika Ring and third to Abby Carpenter.
New this year was the Ugly Christmas Decoration contest for faculty and staff. The winner, by popular vote, went to Vicky Jaeger's hand made latch hook rug scene.
