Christmas here and there

Christmas lightsPerhaps you saw Sports Information’s post that Lady Bison basketball is in a tie with Indiana-Pennsylvania, for 25th place in the USA Today Sports Division II Top 25 Coaches’ Poll.

You might have thought because Indiana and Pennsylvania are both states that Sports Information was confused. Actually, no, Indiana University of Pennsylvania is located in the town of Indiana in Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

It is my hometown, but its even greater claims to fame lie in two Christmas-related items. The “Christmas Tree Capital of the World” has 17 Christmas tree farms and also is the boyhood home of Jimmy Stewart, star of the Christmas classic “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

Christmas has a magical feel on the streets of that small western Pennsylvania town. It is something I miss but am so thankful for the beautifully lighted and decorated campus we have right here at Harding, which will put anyone in the Christmas spirit.

If you live nearby, come enjoy a walk on the quadrangle. Wherever you may be, have a blessed and wonderful Christmas season.
