December is home to many different cultures’ holidays; diversity in celebration is shown in exponential ways throughout this festive month. Advent: Advent is a four week Christian holiday dedicated to the remembrance of the time period of waiting for the foreseen coming of their Messiah, Jesus Christ. Each week has a central focus. Week one is looking towards the future with hope. Week two is dedicated to the prophets who foresaw the coming of their Messiah. Week three is a dedication to John the baptist, and week four to Mother Mary. The holiday begins the fourth Sunday before Christmas, and is often counted down through the use of commercial candy-filled calendars. (Dec. 2-24) Hanukkah: This holiday was created to celebrate the victory of the Jewish people over the Greeks during the Maccabean War in 162 bCE. In the initial celebration a rededication of the temple took place. The story goes that there was a lamp with only enough oil to burn for a day, but the lamp lasted eight days. During the eight days of Hanukkah the perseverance of the Jewish people and the survival of the religion is held in celebration. (Dec. 2-10) Christmas: This is a Christian holiday celebrating the birth of their Messiah, Jesus Christ. A fable based on St. Nick, the patron saint of children, embodies a man named Santa Claus. He goes around and spreads the spirit of giving through presents on this day. A couple of students spoke about how they felt about Christmas. “In St. Vincent there is a Christmas parade and celebration that begins in October,”- Kaya Lewis (VHS senior). “‘I have always celebrated Christmas; it is one of my favorite holidays because I get presents,”-Kasey Herbster (VHS senior).

(Dec. 26 - Jan. 1) his year Mrs. Sarah Armbrust, Culinary Arts and Family Sciences Teacher at Vermillion High School, decided to create a new culinary class pertaining to restaurant management and service. They named their restaurant, Maple Mornings. The class, consisting of eight students, proposed to bring back a Thursday morning breakfast. Each month, on the first Thursday, these students get together and cook a hearty breakfast for students and teachers. Students are asked for a donation to the Maple Mornings program for a plate of food, cooked right on the spot. The morning breakfast initiative not only benefits those who come to school hungry and in search of a good home cooked meal, but also benefits the class. With the money they raise from the breakfast, they are able to fund future meals. So, if you’re hungry and want something to settle your rumbly tummy, make sure you check out the next Maple Mornings breakfast! In addition to breakfast, the chefs of Maple Mornings will become Maple Midterms on Wednesday, January 9 during the semester midterm tests. They will be serving soups and sandwiches from 11:45am-12:45pm in Room 35 of Vermillion High School. As always, a donation to the Maple Mornings program is the requested payment.
