Five ways to show Spartan pride this holiday season
Can you believe October is already over? Well believe it. The weather is getting colder, the days are getting shorter, the squirrels on campus are becoming hoarders; these are all signs of the holiday season being right around the corner and that winter is coming.
Here are five ways you can celebrate the holidays MSU style:
'Let's Light it Up' MSU Christmas Lights
For college football fans, holiday season means bowl season. These Christmas lights created by Let's Light it Up were designed using the color schemes of the top 25 college football teams, allowing fans to decorate their house, apartment, dorm room, or even their office cubicle with their team's colors.
Let’s Light it Up will soon be adding car signs, lawn signs and a whole new line of party items to give fans the freedom to cheer for their team all year long.
It's almost time to start setting up your Christmas tree, and a good way to show some Spartan pride is to decorate your tree with MSU ornaments. The MSU bookstore has a variety of ornaments you can use during the holidays, including some of Santa decked out in Spartan gear, who wouldn't want that?
It's safe to assume that milk and cookies is the signature snack of the holiday season. Cookies are delicious, cookies decorated with Sparty on them? Even better.
MSU pajamas and fuzzy socks
Staying on the topic of milk and cookies, what better way to stay warm and enjoy them than by sporting pajamas and fuzzy socks decorated in Spartan helmets.
MSU ugly sweaters
Wearing tacky yet cozy Christmas sweaters is a mainstream holiday tradition that goes back decades. In the 1980's, The Huxtables from The Cosby Show became synonymous with the goofy-looking attire, and Chevy Chase could often be seen sporting them in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Don't be the only person at the ugly sweater Christmas party without an ugly sweater.
