Andy's Angles: University Tree Weekend
The indoor tree tradition started in 1982, which was my senior year. I wasn't there for the first one. I started going several years ago, for a nice injection of Christmas spirit. I've missed only two since I made it part of my holiday routine.
It's a great tree in a spectacular building. As I've noted here before, Christmas at Marywood really doesn't get rolling until after Thanksgiving, as it should be. There is one drawback. Students get to enjoy the tree for a little more than a week. Finals are coming up, and then, the place clears out for the Christmas break.
There's more-- a nativity scene under the arch that faces Adams Avenue. It looks like they've increased the wattage in the halo bulbs, and they overwhelmed my camera phone. It's worth a look if you're in the area.
