Have a Holly Jolly Allston Christmas

This weekend in Allston is when college students move in, and apartments are flip flopped around leaving furniture covering the streets of Allston.

Allston Christmas is the most wonderful time of year for college students. Every Labor Day Weekend, students are moving in to their new apartments, moving out of their old apartments, and leaving multiple pieces of furniture on the streets for grabs.

Here are the best Allston Christmas pictures of all time:

1. FREE couch!

It's beginning to look a lot like #AllstonChristmas on Linden Street.

3. Please remember to avoid Storrow Drive with your moving truck!

Tip — if you’re a renter and moving to Boston this weekend, be aware of bridge height limits so you don’t get “Storrowed”! Find more tips for first-time renters on our blog: [link in bio> --: @MassStatePolice

10. But most importantly, once you are done moving in and collecting furniture, go reward yourself by wearing a Santa hat and go celebrate with all your besties!
