On a sunny and warm Saturday afternoon, a sea of people emerged on the campus of Morehouse College and Spelman College to celebrate yet another epic homecoming. Each year, the “Spelhouse” homecoming attracts hundreds of people inside and outside of the game. Inside the game, the stands are filled with students, alumni and football lovers ready to cheer on their team to victory. Outside the game, a mix of people from across the nation gathers to tailgate from sun up to sun down.

This year, amongst those tailgaters, were cast members from the heavily anticipated movie Almost Christmas. Almost Christmas is a comedy movie produced by Florida A&M University graduate Will Packer. The movie follows the story of a dysfunctional family reuniting for the holiday, while learning to build stronger relationships, after the passing of their beloved matriarch.


To promote the movie’s upcoming release, certain cast members stopped by the “Spelhouse” Homecoming to spread some cheer as well as hand out sweet potato pies! Sitting in the middle of hundreds of tents and vendors appeared the Almost Christmas food truck. Singer and actress Keri Hilson were amongst the food truck servers, attracting a flood of homecoming attendees. The Almost Christmas food truck was a hit for the Spelhouse homecoming and stayed for hours as an influx of fans grabbed a slice of pie and other souvenirs!


Almost Christmas will hit theaters nationwide on November 11, 2016. Catch the trailer here.
