Special Holiday Memories and Traditions
From Members of the IT Division

Throughout the recorded history of the world, the time of the mid-winter solstice, has been recognized as a time for celebration. There are family and social gatherings as well as reflection on the previous year and hope for the coming year. In the United States the primary holidays during this time are Christmas, the Christian celebration of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth; Chanukah, the Jewish eight day celebration of the Festival of Lights; and Kwanza, the African-American seven day celebration of family, community and culture. No matter which of these holidays are celebrated, the traditional celebration emphasizes family. It holds its special memories and traditions shared and cherished by each individual. In this special issue of In Touch with IT, some members of the IT Division share some of their special memories and holiday traditions. Follow this link for the reflections of Lisa Becker, Kim Breighner, Gavin Foster, Beth Helm, Carl Leinbach, Chris Marsh, Travis Mathna, Gary Milburn, Don Speelman, and Rod Tosten.
