Revist an Old Holiday Tradition of Spending The Day in Philadelphia

I don't know about you, but as I child I remember my parents taking me into Philadelphia on the train and going to Wanamaker's and seeing the light show. I remember being all excited about jumping on the train and walking around the city all dressed up. Good news you can continue this tradition with your family.
You can take the train Septa R3 into Philly, without having to pay for parking or look for a parking space in the city.
Light Show

You can now see the the light show in the old Wanamaker's building, which is now Macys. The show runs every house stating at 10am. During the light show, more than 100,000 bright, energy-efficient LED lights combine to create fantastic holiday images. The lighting display is accompanied by festive music from the world-renowned Wanamaker Grand Organ.Academy Award-winner Julie Andrews narrates the Holiday Light Show.

Once your done watching the show head up to the 3rd floor and check out the Dickens village. Where Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol comes to life with more than 100 fully animated figures reenacting 26 of the story's most memorable moments.When your done walking through the village you can met Santa and tell him everything on you list.
