Christmas Arrives on Campus!

It’s one of the highlights of the year at Villanova (at least for me) – the lighting of the Christmas tree.

There’s several festivities planned around the event, including performances by the campus singing groups, carriage rides through campus, and multiple snack stations.

Here’s one of the musical performances; I did not recognize the song, but thought it was great. If you watch closely at 1:17, you’ll notice the poor guy who is still at work while all these festivities are taking place right outside his office:

Father Peter, the school president, offered a prayer to start off the season of Advent, then led the countdown for the lighting of the tree:

The campus looked beautiful, with lots of holiday decorations, including this Villanova ice sculpture:

It’s a wonderful way to bring the campus together, and to provide the students with a way to relax and enjoy the start of the Christmas season before they get caught up with their final exams and projects.

Merry Christmas from Nova!
