Christmastime is my favorite time of the year! I love all of the lights, decorations, and music. It is a joyous time to celebrate our Savior’s birth and God’s amazing love for us. With Christmas almost here, we decided to create a “Christmas Edition” for this month’s issue. We’ve included a variety of articles and features to help you get in the Christmas spirit! Read our feature story(pages 7-8) and “travel” around the world with NU students, learning about their favorite cultural traditions during Christmastime. Be sure to try some of the holiday recipes (pages 9-10) and check out Peter’s Perspective (page 11) on his favorite movies to watch this time of the year. I can’t believe this is the final issue of the semester! It has been such a blessing to lead The Talon so far this school year. I have loved every minute! From the late nights designing and editing, to working with my amazing staff (page 3), to the excitement of seeing our issue in print each month – this whole experience has been so much fun! I look forward to what is ahead for The Talon next semester. I hope you all have a great Christmas break!
