The beginning of December means warmer jackets come out, holiday decorations go up, and an infectious spirit of giving spreads throughout communities.

For Carlmont, it means holiday grams.

From Nov. 30 to Dec. 9, the class of 2018’s elected student body officers sell holiday grams for students to purchase and send to another student as a way to spread cheer around the school.

Junior Class President Tiffany Chung said, “This has been a long-standing tradition at Carlmont and it’s a great way to make people happy, especially right before finals. The purpose of the holiday grams is to spread some love during the holidays of course, but it actually is also a fundraiser for our class to help fund class activities.”

A holiday gram is a small piece of paper with a handwritten note attached to a candy cane that is then personally delivered to the recipient, according to Junior Class Vice-President Jimmy Rudger.

“I love the idea of holiday grams. It’s a great way to show your friends that you appreciate them!” said Ana Bazgan, a junior.

While some find the holiday grams to be uplifting and fun, others point out the downsides from them.

Luke Billot, a junior, said,”Although I think it’s a great way to spread some appreciation and have students get into the holiday spirit, it can also hurt some students. When candy grams are passed out and you’re the only one without one, it might make you feel left out or not as loved.”

Despite the mix of feelings regarding holiday grams, many students view it as a positive way to spread appreciation.

Rudger said, “I think holiday grams are a great way to show someone you care about them. It can make a person’s day when they receive one from you. Who wouldn’t want to do that?”
