Get into the holiday spirit: Mistletoe Madness Week starts today. Here’s what’s happening:

  • 11 a.m.-2 p.m. today near the information desk in Murray-Herrick Campus Center: Make ornaments! STAR will provide the clear bulbs, glitter and markers; you provide the artistry. Your Christmas tree will be the merrier for it!
  • 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11, in front of the arches: Meet here, then board a bus to downtown Minneapolis’ Marshall Fields store, where you’ll visit the store’s 40th annual holiday display in the eighth-floor auditorium: "Paddington Bear and the Christmas Surprise." Be a kid again!
  • 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 12, in front of the arches: Meet here, then take a bus to the Holidazzle parade. The bus will return afterward.
  • 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13, in front of the arches: Go ice skating at the Depot! Buses will leave from the arches. Two lucky winners will get $30 gift certificates to the Old Spaghetti Factory. Sign up in the Box Office. Admission is $6. If you need to rent skates, add $6 more.
