Word on the Street: What is your favorite Christmas song?

The end of November is an exciting time for students in Chapel Hill. Finals are in a couple of weeks, basketball season is beginning and, of course, Christmastime is right around the corner. To ring in the holiday season, staff writer A.J. O’Leary asked a few students what their favorite Christmas songs are.

Healing Hands uses music to make a difference

The new organization, Healing Hands, seeks to utilize music as more than just a method of self expression or a way to pass the time — they want to help people forget their troubles, even during their darkest hours.
