Women celebrate “Hanging of the Greens” at Dimmitt Hall. Dimmitt Hall had several Christmas traditions, including a Christmas tree party, a formal dinner and hanging of the greens. According to a booklet on Dimmitt Hall from the 1950’s, “The Sophomore girls arise early the last morning before the Christmas holidays to hang holly on each door and awaken the house with caroling. The girls eat breakfast at 6:30 clad in house coats and pajamas.” Today “Hanging of the Greens” is a campus wide event that also includes a Yule log service, decorating a Christmas tree and singing carols.
