Christmas Has Arrived in Lancaster City

December is here, which means the end of the semester is quickly approaching. If you find that you happen to have some free time in between studying for finals or writing those dreaded papers, take a short trip to downtown Lancaster! 

The Christmas season has officially arrived in Lancaster City. The streets are lined with decorations and lights, and Penn Square is perhaps the most magical sight to see. Located in the center of the city, Penn Square is host of a large and beautifully-decorated Christmas tree.

There are many unique restaurants and shops in close proximity to the square, as well as Central Market. If you are looking to do something festive with your free time, or need to do Christmas shopping, downtown Lancaster is the place for you.

But bundle up, because it’s getting cold!

Major: Multidisciplinary Studies with concentrations in marketing and public relations.Graduation: Spring 2015I have been a writer for Her Campus since the beginning of fall 2014 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have a passion for fashion and cosmetics, and although I like to keep up with current trends, I also like to stick to classics that never go out of style. I believe that less can be more, and it is always okay to wear red lipstick- no matter the occasion. I lived in England twice, and that culture has influenced many of my interests and lifestyle. Like most brits I love drinking tea and eating fish n chips. Rainy, gloomy days are not my enemy, but rather provide a sense of nostalgia. When I lived in Europe I was able to travel to many countries which has left me with a desire to travel the rest of the world.I lived on a horse farm for several years, which has given me the knowledge and passion for working with horses. I volunteer once a week at a sanctuary in Manheim that rehabilitates abused and neglected horses, and would like to eventually volunteer with exotic wildlife. I love all animals, and currently own a pet hedgehog, named Twix. My career goals would be to work as a marketing or public relations professional in entertainment, sports, or fashion. I have many dreams, some bigger than others. In the meantime I plan on taking small stepping stones that will one day lead there.
