West Residence Hall Lewis

For those of you not familiar with this holiday, it historically celebrates Saint Martin of Tours. A former Roman soldier, he is most famous for his generosity in cutting his own cloak during a snowstorm to give it to a homeless man on the street so that he would stay alive. In his memory, it is traditional for processions of children carrying their own homemade paper lanterns to sing songs and go door to door each year on November 11th.
