Sweet Briar College kicked off the holiday season with a Christmas tree lighting event, made unique by the Sweet Briar riding council dressing up horses and bringing them from the stables to the tree. Marcia Thom-Kaley, Sweet Briar College dean of students, said the tree lighting is part of a week of events, including the tradition of students decorating the chapel and a holiday concert. "It warms my heart," she said about the Dec. 4 event.
