Come one, come all to the official Christmas tree lighting!

For a cheery, wholesome start to your Christmas holiday Festivus season, head over to Dahlgren Quadrangle at 5 p.m. this evening for the official lighting of the Georgetown University Christmas Tree.

Mask and Bauble will be performing their interpretation of the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, and Georgetown’s musical groups will be adding their dulcet tones to the festivities.

If the cordial invitation you received earlier this week from, among others, the Department of Facilities Management and Auxiliary Services didn’t entice you, perhaps the complimentary hot cocoa and holiday snacks will lure you into the crisp, jovial air of the evening.

Still need another reason to abandon your pre-pregame on the last Friday night before quiet hours begin? This merry gathering usually heralds the traditional holiday-time appearance of Georgetown’s very own Father Christmas, President John J. DeGioia! Although Santa attended last year, will DeGioia himself hear Hoyas’ wishes this Christmas season?
