Christmas Day in Burbank 2015

Here's what Burbank California looked like on Christmas Day from the rooftop of our campus in Magnolia Park in the heart of the city. The music is what was playing on KUSC radio at the time which is one of the stations we listen to when class is in progress. A special moment to share with all.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Holiday Season and a Happy and Creative New Year in 2016!
