Each year, the University Program Council, or UPC, and Hillel at Auburn helps the Auburn family ring in the holidays with their Holiday Lighting Ceremony on Samford Lawn.

Come and celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with the lighting of the Christmas tree and Menorah. The holidays mark a time when the whole Auburn family can join together and be merry. This program embodies this by bringing festive cheer to Auburn’s campus and celebrate the variety of traditions and diversity amongst Auburn students, families and the surrounding community.

This year’s ceremony will take place from 4-6 p.m. on Nov. 27. Join UPC and Hillel in kicking off the holidays with musical performances, family-friendly crafts, desserts, refreshments and holiday cheer.

The first hour of the ceremony will consist of family-friendly holiday activities from 4-5 p.m. Then from 5-6 p.m., there will be a celebration of the holiday season through live music and will wrap up with a few special guests that will light the tree and menorah.

After the tree and menorah are lit, all are welcome to stay for pictures and enjoy the holiday spirit on Samford Lawn.
