On Monday, my sister and I took Francie into the city on the train, which was a thrill on it's own for my little adventurer. Our first stop was Macy's to watch the light show. It happens every hour, on the hour.
Next, we wandered through Dickens Village, also in the Macy's. It is an absolutely adorable animated walk through, telling the story of The Christmas Carol.
Then it was back out into the cold. We made our way over to City Hall to check out the Christmas Village.
The German Christmas Market is situated in Love Park. It's a decent size, with plenty of vendors. There was no shortage of unique gifts and holiday cheer.
We were able to watch the Comcast Holiday Spectacular before heading home. It plays every hour, on the hour, in the lobby of the Comcast Center. Suburban Station is right next to it, so we didn't even have to leave the building to catch the train.
The last time I saw the light show and Dickens Village was with my parents, several years ago. I never would have imagined then that my next visit would be with my own child. My, my, where does the time go?!
Thanks for the memories, Philly.
