With holidays approaching, CB is anticipating the joy and spirit the seasons bring us. The hype of Holy Bowl still lingers in the hallways as Halloween creeps around the corner. Many start to focus on trying to find a corky clown to go to homecoming with. Sooner than we realize, the smell of pumpkin pie will be in the air and the leaves will be falling reminding us to be thankful for our break from school and stress. Then “the most wonderful time of the year” will be upon us and CB will be consumed will jolly and Christmas themed prayer services just when we need prayer the most — finals week. After the changing of the years and our two week break comes to an end, students will come back to await on of CB’s most beloved holiday, Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day at CB defines uniqueness.
Arriving to school early every February 14th to scavenge for your friends’ hearts brings everyone together. By the end of the day hearts have been traded around and there are no more bright red hearts upon the walls. Instead everyone is wearing hearts on their red and pink sleeves. After the love filled day of candy grams and photo booths, students go home to put their new hearts with the ones from past years.
“The whole school is united,” says Emily Shepard (’18) who is a big fan of Valentine’s Day.
Each holiday brings a different spirt to CB, or a lack thereof. Students Brianna Castaneda (’18) and Benjamin Rivera (’18) believe that Holy bowl week needs some improvement.
“We don’t do enough!” Bri exclaims.
Having one short rally at the end of the day does not give Holy Bowl the hype it deserves. Ben explains that if we had a week of events that added to blue out week it would get more people to participate. Students already wear blue anyways — having a theme for each day or free dress all week would be more exciting.
Howl Bowl is one of CB’s most famous holidays and is known all around the city. Not only the student body and staff can enjoy but the alumni and parents. Everyone is anticipating the win against Jesuit. With high hopes that 2017 will be our year, Presley Fresques (’18) awaits for the rally, blue snow cones, and free dress.
Halloween is in need of some serious help here at CB.
“It needs to be so much more lit,” explains Alora Gardiner (’18).
Presley and Alora discussed many ideas that would make having Halloween on a Monday more enjoyable.
Decorations, hot chocolate, Halloween grams, photo booths, pumpkin carving contests, pumpkin pie and a haunted house in the gym? Sounds better. Bleed Blue? No CB needs to bleed Halloween.
Christmas brings light to all of CB.
Drinking hot coca during break, decorating lockers and candy grams make Christmas at CB so special. CB is united by the birth of Jesus Christ and the spirt of he whole school.
“Everything is so bright and cheerful,” states Bri.
Sometimes birthdays can be the greatest holiday at CB. Seeing your best friends’ reaction to their decorated locker with pictures and colorful wallpaper is a very “happy time” explains Karly Kiefer (’18).
CB’s holidays will live in our hearts forever. All the joy and excitement that echo’s through the halls during the holiday creates an environment that makes CB the place to be
