The 12 Days of Penn State Christmas

There is something magical about winter at Penn State. The twinkling lights on Allen Street, Old Main standing proudly behind a frenzy of flurries, the wreath and decorations outside of the Corner Room, the Lion Shrine all coated with snow — it’s the stuff that dreams are made of.

Indeed, the holidays are happiest when they’re in Happy Valley, but one thing has been missing for far too long: an official Penn State Christmas carol. Though we may not have come up with the tune ourselves, the words are from the heart.
