USC–It’s the week after Halloween, and USC is taking no time off to prepare for the very next holiday, Christmas.
And nothing says getting into the holiday spirit more than erecting a 100ft tall Christmas tree in the middle of Trousdale Parkway.
“Isn’t it a little early for this?” asks David Weissman, “I mean, Thanksgiving isn’t even for three more weeks.”
Many other students are underwhelmed by the tree as well.
“I give an A for effort, but having to walk single file to get around it blows,” complains avid walker Sarah Connor.
To continue spreading the yuletide joy, USC will set up a nativity scene in McCarthy Quad recounting the story of the three wise men giving baby Jesus gold, frankincense, and myrrh in order to remind students the true meaning of Christmas: getting presents.
