Hoya for the Holidays

The season is here for holiday cheer. When children get wrapped up in stories of Santa and reindeer. Bright and merry the days we’ll keep as we listen to seasonal music until lulled to sleep. We’ll light the tree, you’ll hang your stockings and curl up with the warmth of live events, music and Georgetown-themed decorations to celebrate being Hoya for the Holidays.

Merry Christmas from Georgetown University!

A special thanks to Santa Claus for helping light up the Hilltop.
