Fireworks and Christmas Lighting Usher in Advent Season

Ohio Christian University ushered in the Advent season with old traditions and new ones.  The evening started with University employees connecting and being encouraged by Rev. David Dean reading the Christmas Story to children present and with OCU students singing carols.  The celebration moved outdoors for a public gathering with more carol singing at the front of Maxwell Center, followed by a countdown to initiate Christmas lighting of the campus and an impressive fireworks display timed to start with playing of a prerecorded musical program.

After the light show, those assembled moved into the Maxwell Center cafeteria where everyone enjoyed the camaraderie heightened with hot chocolate and cookies.  Student Development wrapped up the evening with an "ugly Christmas sweater" contest for students.

OCU campus will to be lit for Christmas throughout December.
