In a year unlike anything anyone could have imagined last year at this time, it’s comforting to see some familiar traditions carried on in Happy Valley.

The Christmas tree at the intersection of College Avenue and South Allen Street is lit, as always.

The musically-timed lights at MLK Plaza on Fraser Street are a great new Christmas experience in downtown State College.

On campus, the Arboretum is always a beacon of good cheer this time of year.
