LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Christian University hosted its first Big Blue Family Christmas on Monday.

The free event began with a traditional Christmas dinner at 5:30 p.m.

Local families enjoyed games, cookie decorating, hot drinks, and more.

Small fires were lit around the sidewalks as guests and students roasted marshmallows and shared in each other's company.

The Grinch and Santa Claus both attended the event, giving children the opportunity to take photos with both of them.

LCU's musical group, Forte, sang Christmas carols and President Tim Perrin gave a small address welcoming everyone to the event.

Perrin hopes to make LCU's Big Blue Family Christmas an annual event that students, faculty, and guests can enjoy every Christmas season.

Cheers rose up from the crowd as the countdown ended and the Christmas tree, along with LCU mascot, the Chap, were lit.

The festivities continued with some more caroling by Forte and a showing of the popular Christmas favorite, "The Grinch."
