I also wanted to share a video titled, “A Cowboy Christmas,” presented by SUNUP and narrated by Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis. It is a heartfelt adaptation of the poem "The Night Before Christmas" featuring agricultural photos and beautiful music that I think you will enjoy. I hope you take a minute to watch this video and get into the spirit of Christmas today.


Here’s wishing all of you a very merry Christmas!
