It was a Big Blue Christmas, Charlie Brown! The Fourth Lubbock Christian University Big Blue Christmas drew students and families from the Lubbock community to campus for a festive holiday extravaganza with music, snacks, crafts, and more.
On the night of Nov. 29, the LCU campus mall was decorated for Christmas with familiar characters from The Peanuts: Lucy, Linus, Sally, Snoopy, Woodstock, and Charlie Brown. As the sun went down, LCU’s music groups – Jazz Band, Forte, Praise choir, and more – performed Christmas songs from the steps of the Moody for the crowds that gathered for s’mores, Frito pie, and hot cocoa.
Lucy, Charlie Brown, and Snoopy posed for pictures with children and families in the Baker, where attendees also had the chance to sit with Santa for photos and Christmas wishes.
Both the Baker and the SUB were filled with craft stations that ranged from decorating cookies or packing bags of snack mix to creating Peanuts themed ornaments, magnets, and decorations. Children collected the snacks and crafts in Charlie Brown themed goodie bags.
The evening of fun concluded with a message from Linus explaining what Christmas is all about, followed by a countdown to the Lighting of the Chap.
Big Blue Christmas was a group effort coordinated by Terri Warren, special events coordinator in MarCom, made possible with Aramark, LCU’s food service provider, the fine arts department, and significant volunteer help from students, faculty, and staff from all across campus.
