Shortly after the reflection and tree trim, community members who signed up to participate in the traditional Holiday Dinner will stay in Doyle Dining Hall. Students receive small tokens of appreciation and are treated to a special dinner served by faculty and staff volunteers.
There will be traditional singing of favorite Christmas carols, including our Notre Dame version of the “Twelve Days of Christmas”. The evening will conclude with a carol outside to celebrate the traditional lighting of Gibbons Hall’s Merrick Tower.
We encourage you to wear holiday attire. There will be a contest for best holiday sweater!
