This week we are celebrating St. Martin’s Day, which is observed in many European countries: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Martin%27s_Day.
Sounds interesting? Then join us this coming Wednesday, Nov. 13, from 3-6 pm. We will meet in the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center (located in the Bloxton House, which is sandwiched between the Erwin Building and Greene Residence Hall) to craft our own paper lanterns. You can join us at any time up until 5:30 when we will walk with our lit lanterns across campus. Here is a very brief family video shot in Germany: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WY0GUAyRNjI#t=60 to show a bit of authentic Laternenlaufen.
