Fun Friday: Falvey’s Festive Fir Flashback


Happy Holidays, ‘Cats! Seeing as we were unable to gather together to assemble Falvey’s Christmas tree, we thought we’d share a time-lapse video of last year’s festive fir! The decorating was documented by Shawn Proctor, Communication and Marketing Program Manager, last December. Stay safe and have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, and a Joyful Kwanzaa!

#TBT: Christmas Through the Years Pt. 2

picture from 1999 Christmas Tree Lighting of people caroling

This week on our throwback countdown to Christmas (8 DAYS!) we’re taking it back two decades to the 1999 Christmas Tree Lighting. All of the pictures digitally archived from this event can be found here. The picture shown features singers, probably singing some classic carols in preparation for the tree lighting and the kick-off to the Christmas season.

The first thing that I think of when I think of Christmas trees is the debate of getting a real tree versus a fake tree. Growing up, we usually just had a fake tree and for the last handful of years, it’s just become a permanent fixture in our living room even though we’d redecorate it every year. Now, my husband and I go out and pick out a tree every year, and it’s become a family tradition with some of my in-laws. 

Real tree or fake, nothing beats the feeling of gathering around a Christmas tree with loved ones to hang lights, put up favorite ornaments, and finally top the tree with the topper to complete the scene. What Christmas tree traditions do you have?

Many jolly staff elves helped to put up this year’s Christmas tree in the Lobby! (Can you spot any familiar faces?) We hope that our festive decor makes our students holiday season just that much more merry and bright.
