Office of Multicultural Affairs and Student Organizations to Sponsor CultureFest
The Office of Multicultural Affairs is collaborating with a number of student organizations to sponsor CultureFest, a two-day event designed to celebrate cultural diversity at Hamilton College. CultureFest will kick off on Friday, Nov. 8, at 9 p.m. in the Events Barn with a Poetry Slam, followed by a Latin Night after-party at 10:30 p.m. The Asian Cultural Society is planning a Diwali Festival on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 6 p.m. in the Annex, followed by a number of creative performances and an after-party. Of course, how could we have a CultureFest without food? One element that has been missing from previous CultureFest celebrations is participation from the faculty and staff. If you have a creative talent that you would like to share during this celebration, please contact Marc David at ext. 4012 as soon as possible. Don't allow Culturefest to pass this year without showing your support. More ...

Broedel argued that the roots of Halloween’s traditions were not derived from ancient pagan customs; rather, the rituals of Halloween, such as trick-or-treating and carving pumpkins came from medieval Christian traditions. “Efforts to connect [Halloween traditions] to paganism may have been a form of stealth Catholic bashing,” Broedel noted.
