From binging Netflix, to exercising, to dying hair and more, the world is being faced with an unlimited amount of free time.

Do you have your cookies ready for Santa? Here is a tasty and simple Christmas cookie recipe for the holiday season.
Christmas is know as “The most wonderful time of the year” and it is typically spent with friends and family. Every Wesleyan family has different Christmas traditions, and here are just a few of the unique Wesleyan Christmas traditions.
Mission trips, the staple of Wesleyan spring breaks, are quickly approaching. With these trips coming up, mission retreats are put in place to allow teams to really get to know each other before their trip. This year, Wesleyan is sending out ten different mission teams: nine during spring break and one, South Africa, during the summer.
Before they depart on their trips, the teams get to know each other better and bond as a team with a retreat. The purpose of the mission retreats is to “allow the teams to get away from the hustle and bustle of Wesleyan, from sports, from home and have a focused 24 hour period of time together to grow into a team,” said Amelia Davis, Dean of Student Ministries.
Wesleyan has two weeks off for Christmas Break. There is time to spend with family and to eat food, but more importantly there is time to catch up on your Netflix shows. The Green and Gold staff asked several high school students which Netflix shows are their favorite that they would suggest for others to watch. Here are their responses for optimal binge watching, spanning across a variety of genres. Happy viewing.
The following students that gave their suggestions:
Seniors, Abbie Lochmandy, Lauren Morales and Whitney Archer. Junior, Jack Mills. Sophomores, Kat Saylor, Grace Tyler and Hannah Hufham. Freshmen, Whitaker Welch, Bella Barnes and Charlie Taylor.
