It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Notre Dame kicked off the Christmas season this week with a cookie contest, tree decorating and our 5th annual Christmas in Pardini tree lighting! Family and friends braved the drizzly weather to enjoy hot cocoa, treats and performances by Notre Dame's vocal and dance groups.

The Christmas in Pardini tradition was started by Mashia Mazumber '18 who wanted to showcase the diversity of Notre Dame's clubs and organizations. Over the years, performances and contests have been added. This year's contest winners are:

Tree Winners
