Xavier Saints are taking advantage of this Winter Break! From Canada to Guatemala, to Montana, our students are traveling to meet family and celebrate the Holidays! With the stress of finals approaching, students are looking forward to their upcoming trips. Junior Andres Arias has traveled to Guatemala for the past six years. This break, he will reunite with his whole family and experience Christmas and New Years at the beach.

Senior Jenna Braun is going to Lake Tahoe and Montana to visit her family. She shares that she is not prepared for the 25° F to 40° freezing weather. Jenna is most looking forward to reuniting with family that lives in Lake Tahoe and skiing! She said, “This annual trip makes me so excited because I can experience the holidays with the people I love and have a white Christmas in the snow.”

Freshman Cailee Johnson will travel to Havasu, Arizona for New Year’s. This trip is a family tradition on her dad’s side. Cailee loves to go off-roading and hang out with her family and friends. Her favorite holiday memory is baking Christmas cookies with her family. She is ready to leave the desert for Winter Break.

Lloyd DeKlotz is staying home for the holidays. His most-valued tradition is going Christmas Caroling in Coachella and singing songs for the Church. This quality time he spends with his family makes the holidays much more special. He also collects a new ugly sweater each year to wear on Christmas Eve. 

As we all look forward to our Winter Break travels, let’s keep the holiday spirit alive by being friendly, sharing love, and spreading cheer. Whichever holiday you are celebrating and wherever you are traveling, have a wonderful time out of school and spend time with family. Saints, remember to stay positive and enjoy Winter Break!
