Iowa Lakes Community College staff and students hosted an Elizabethan madrigal feaste Saturday, Dec. 7 on the Estherville campus. The Elizabethan Madrigal Feaste pays tribute to the Christmas Feaste that was an annual custom in early England. This custom originated from the celebration of the New Year and was an extravagant display of rejoicing and toasting of the 12 days of Christmas.
