Fraternities Light Up With Holiday Spirit

Per tradition, the fraternity houses throughout State College participated in their annual Holiday Lights tour and competition, similar to their annual Halloween festivities. Once every year, these large and ornate houses are decorated from head to toe with bright, flashing, festive lights. Decorations vary, from the classic lights on strings wrapped around the house, to blow up Santas, reindeer, and even penguins. There were a lot of houses to see, but these are some of our favorites:
