Associated Student Body (ASB) hosted its Christmas Spirit Week from Dect. 6 to Dec. 11.
As per annual tradition, ASB’s end-of-the-year spirit week revolves around the theme of Christmas. Students participated in Merry Monday, Twas the Night Before Christmas Tuesday, Baby it’s Cold Wednesday, Holly Jolly Thursday and Jingle Bell Rock Friday.
According to ASB president senior Matthew Chan, keeping up with the tradition of Christmas Spirit Week helps deal with the boredom of staying at home.
“The reason why we decided to bring back the Christmas Spirit Week this year is that [distance learning] and staying home gets repetitive; as such, organizing spirit weeks allows us as students to have something to look forward to. Even though we are currently at home right now, [ASB] is still keeping up with our annual battle of the class, and that also serves as an incentive for student participation,” Chan said.
Moreover, ASB member sophomore Bellai Sandoval acknowledged the benefits of these events but also highlighted some downfalls that may come with virtual spirit events.
“The spirit week serves as a way for [individuals to] show their school spirit, especially now where everything is online. ASB also realizes the methods we use to keep track of spirit week, [such as social media], may not be available to everyone but we are working to improve and come up with better ways to run our events,” Sandoval said.
As stated by Spirit Week participant Sophomore Sarah Lubag, out of the five days her favorite was Pajama day.
“Even though people can pretty much wear pajamas every day due to quarantine, Pajama day to me is still one of the most comforting days out of any spirit week especially since it is right before the finals,” Lubang said.
ASB’s next spirit week will be within the month of January next year.
