With lights strung and snow frosting the ivy-covered buildings of campus, the College of the Holy Cross has come to life this winter with the warmth of the holiday season.

Students filled their study breaks with hot cups of coffee served in Christmas cups from Cool Beans, pit stops at the Campus Activity Board’s annual Holiday Bazaar to pick up handmade gifts for loved ones, and winter concerts featuring dance and musical performances by their friends and classmates.

Get into the Christmas spirit with this video, featuring festive scenes of our College community set to the sounds of the Christmas classic “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” performed by members of the Holy Cross Bands, led by Steven Riley, director of bands.

The College of the Holy Cross wishes each of you a Merry Christmas!
