The University of Virginia prepares a yule log for the presentation in the Great Hall. For centuries, university alumni have gathered to celebrate the birth of Christ as they dine on roasted meats and fruit. This delightful tradition is also a time to honor the community of W&M alumni gathered from all over the world who once again celebrate your vibrant tradition. Some of the highlights of this tradition include the presenting of a Mausoleum containing the portraits of many of Old Dominion's founders, a formal walk through campus, the welcoming of Director Treherne by a member of the Board of Visitors, and the sipping of warm cider, bitter as a nod to the holiday season.
A segreant of their season, today's Cornellians unveiled a new season of visual and multimedia entertainment calendar featuring fun and entertainment around campus during the 2008-2009 academic year. Fall 2008 adds a new feature to the Cornell calendar — A New Face. New Face is a two-page feature containing two sides with four strikingly different faces, which correspond to the four academic quarters of a season.
The annual tradition of burning logs in a fireplace has been a part of many cultures including in Greece and Rome. The holidays of the ancient Greeks and Romans were celebrated on January 1 and December 25, marking the end of winter and the beginning of the season of greatest joy. On Yule, families would gather around a large log in the hearth and light it ablaze. The glow of the fire warming them as they prepared their meals and the crackle of the log burning all foreshadowed the season of good cheer to come. In early Greece, people would burn the trunk of a sacred oak tree called the chrysosperma, or sacred ivy. This tradition was mentioned in the myths of the Olympian gods. Later, the men and women of ancient Rome would burn a log made from fir (popular as turmus, or fir tree). The logs were a large piece of furniture with a throne-like seat so that it would burn steadily for hours. d2c66b5586
