Allston Christmas Eve

September 1For those not from the area, you may not be familiar with this rather unique Boston holiday that results from the onslaught of students moving into the area for the start of the next academic year. Don’t believe me? The holiday even is in the Urban Dictionary: allston christmas.

Allston Christmas will really begin tomorrow when renters begin to toss all their unwanted furnishings onto the street as they vacate their sublet or previous apartment and for the next 12+ hours are likely to be unable to get into their new apartment.
