JMAC Winter Intercession: Christkindlmarket and Mochitsuki Outings

Season’s greetings, JMACers!

The holiday season is finally upon us, and with it comes seasonal festivities! If you’re in the Chicagoland area this holiday season, we’d like to invite you to a few outings during the winter intercession.

Wednesday, December 9th is JMAC’s outing to Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza! Christkindlmarket is an open-air German market with plentiful gift vendors and delicious food stalls! Meet up with Nicole and Joe at 12pm in front of the Barnes & Noble on DePaul’s Loop campus, for they’ll be leading the group to Christkindlmarket at 12:30pm.

If you’re unable to meet up with the loop group by 12:30, make your way over to Daley Plaza, drop on by and say hi! JMAC members will be at Christkindlmarket until 4:30pm. Receive notifications and communicate with us via the event page for the JMAC 2015-2016 Facebook group.

Another outing this season is Mochitsuki at the Midwest Buddhist Temple on Saturday, December 12th from 8:30am-1pm. This is a joyous social event centered around pounding rice cakes as a post-harvest celebration. Though this is an unofficial JMAC outing, we encourage everyone to check out the event page and learn more about mochitsuki!

Hope to see you there, and happy holidays to all!
