    Otterbein Chaplain Shares Family Tradition of Candy Making

    During the Depression, when money was so tight, my grandmother, grandfather and my father (who was a little boy) spent Advent making and selling about 300 pounds of candy. It was exhausting and stopped being fun long before it was finished. After the Depression, they decided not to sell it anymore, and to only make candy once a year, to give as gifts, to say thank you to those who contributed in a positive way in their lives. That has continued to be our family tradition since then.

    Professor Reflects on How Student Taught Her the Meaning of Giving Back

    At this time of year, when we stop to reflect about home and the people who make our lives more meaningful, I think about all of the wonderful Otterbein people I have had the pleasure of getting to know and the impact they have had in my life. One of the best lessons about giving came from a former student. Like so many others, Sherry Williamson makes me proud to be a part of the Model Community that is Otterbein University.

    Christmas Eve on Ninth Street

    I can close my eyes and be transported to that little house almost instantly. The sights, the smells, the excitement of having a whole evening to play with our cousins, of all us girls sitting in Grandmas bedroom on her bed trying on lipstick and perfume and talking about boys and music and whatever else junior high school girls were into during the ’70s. We clung to the minutes like our lives depended on it, not wanting the night to end until it was time to go to midnight mass.
