(Who cares if they're faux flakes, right?) 

Real snowfall in Los Angeles is hard to come by: It's not every class that gets to frolic in the real frozen stuff like these students shown cavorting on Patterson Field in January 1949, left. So leave it to the Office of Student Life to create a little winter wonderland in the Quad for its annual Winter Fair on December 4. Above, sophomores Deon Summerville, Jessie Fontana-Maisel, and Maddy Farkas snap a selfie under the "snow." Other highlights of the fair included holiday crafts, a gingerbread house-making contest, music, and cold-weather comfort foods such as hot chocolate, latkes, and French toast.
