Must-have: 2019 Baylor Traditions Christmas ornaments
As a Baylor Bear, there’s a pretty good chance your Christmas tree has more than its share of green-and-gold decorations. Thanks to Baylor’s Traditions Christmas ornament program, our family’s tree now features the Baylor seal, bear mascot, Judge Baylor/Pat Neff combo, and Sailor Bear.
This year’s addition? The classic interlocking BU, a Baylor symbol for generations. (You can read more on the history of the interlocking BU here.) This year marks the perfect time for the BU to join the Traditions ornament line, following this spring’s rollout of the Baylor United look.
As in past years, the second ornament option features the university seal and celebrates Baylor’s reign as the oldest continually operating university in Texas. Engraved in the seal, of course, is the school motto: “Pro Ecclesia, Pro Texana” — “For the Church, for Texas” — which was adopted in 1851 and declares who we are today, and who we will be in the future.
Remember, the Baylor Traditions Christmas ornaments are limited editions — so make sure you add these to your collection now! They are available (while supplies last) with a $38 gift to the university, which must be received by Dec. 3.
Sic ’em, Bears!
