ST. MI-kRY'S hen December rolls around with its bitter frosts, the minds and hearts of all at Orchard Lake turn chiefly to the ioyful season of Christmas. Usually a white blanket of snow provides the setting for the activities that are soon to take place. The first event of the Noel season is the annual Christmas Musicale. After the last notes have passed away, the Faculty and students break the traditional "opl'atek" and wish each other the best for the com- ing year. On the eve of the day of departure for home, many of the students sing the traditional Kolendy as they d d t in each of which is found the Nativity march across the campus visiting the residence halls of Faculty an stu en s, Scene or Ztdbek. For those members of the Faculty and students who re- main onthe campus during the ioyful season, the traditional Polish "Wigilia" is observed on Christmas Eve. At midnight all go to the campus chapel to attend the "Pasterka" otherwise known as Midnight Mass. After the Christmas and Epiphany seasons are over, preparations are made for the Pre-Lenten Party.

IN THE WINTER day before Ash-Wednesday the annual "Pqczki Party" is held. During the party all have a gay time singing Polish folk songs and eating many "pqczki" or ielly doughnuts. On Ash Wednesday the merry-making ceases and Lent is spent in fasting and attending Lenten services fGorzkie Zalej and Stations of the Cross in preparation for the glorious triumph o'f Christ over death. The sombreness ofthe death of wintei' and its dormant life burst forth in full glory in the new vitality of spring. On the Feast ofthe Epiphany stu- dents observe the Polish custom of marking the entrance doors of the residence halls with the tradi- tional initials of the Magi.
