Holiday Traditions

Christopher Newport University is a school full of spirit. With the winter holidays approaching, the annual tradition here at CNU is coming up. Every year, CNU hosts a concert called Holiday Happening and the Lighting of the Lawn. Students perform at Holiday Happening, but it is open to the public.

As soon as Holiday Happening is over, students, their families and the community may head on over to the Great Lawn for a celebration. First, there is a countdown and the tree is lit up with some fireworks in the background. Trust me, the tree with Christopher Newport Hall in the background is a beautiful view, perfect for some pictures with your friends and family! There are so many fun activities to participate in. These activities make you feel like you are in the North Pole and they include festive holiday music, photos with Santa, crafts, vendors and food trucks. Free photos with Santa? That is something you definitely do not want to miss out on!

You might want to take a break from the craziness of the last two weeks before finals, so mark your calendars for next year and have some holiday spirit with the Christopher Newport community!
