Peek at the Week: November 28

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

In Swamp Thing, Dick Durock, in the role of Swamp Thing, said “The way out is through.”

We’re in the home stretch now, Wildcats. We have just a little over 3 weeks until can purge the stress and anxiety surrounding finals, papers, and grades from our brains. With 75% of the semester done, the only way out is through. Hopefully, Thanksgiving Break gave you the energy boost you need to push through the rest of the semester and finish it with confidence, pride, and relief.

Good luck, Wildcats!

HOLIDAYS THIS WEEK

As some of you may know, today, Nov. 28 is Cyber Monday (get some of your holiday shopping done by taking advantage of some of these online deals), but that is not the only fun holiday coming up this week.

Today is also National French Toast Day, and the options are plentiful at Villanova. Stop by one of the dining halls this morning for some delicious options, including St. Mary’s Hall’s French Toast Bake and Donahue Court’s made-to-order Texas French Toast. Or, if you’re in the mood for some off-campus food or are more of a breakfast-for-dinner person, find a cozy local diner.

Tomorrow, Nov. 29, is Chadwick Boseman Day, a tribute to the late celebrity who lost his private battle to cancer a little over a year ago. If you’re feeling nostalgic or sad, you can celebrate his work by watching 42, Boseman’s Jackie Robinson biopic, available through Falvey’s DVD collection, or Black Panther, available online through Falvey.

For all the winter-holiday lovers, Thursday, Dec. 1, is National Christmas Lights Day. This December tradition is a radiant kick-off to the winter holiday season that Christmas and non-Christmas celebrators alike can both appreciate (Hanukkah, for example, is also the Celebration of Lights). Celebrate by throwing up some twinkly lights (and any other festive decor), or, my personal favorite, by taking a drive around local neighborhoods to admire the lights.

Sunday, Dec 4, is National Cookie Day. With all the cold weather and holidays, December is the perfect month to warm up the oven and bake (or eat) your favorite cookies, and Sunday is the perfect excuse to do just that. My personal favorite winter cookies are ginger cremes (recipe coming to the blog soon), butter cookies, and pizzelles. If you want a delicious cookie without the hassle of baking, drive to your nearest Insomia Cookies or Crumbl Cookies, my personal favorite (their menu rotates every week, but their sweet honey cornbread cookie is absolutely divine).
