The holidays take on a deeper meaning through the customs and traditions families return to...a touchstone of identity. Visiting Wanamaker's for the Christmas Light Show was always one of them for my family. Through the years, even though Wanamaker's gave way to Macy's, this Philadelphia tradition continues and each year provides a moment in time for people to get caught up in the magic of lights and music.
A new tradition to add to family holiday adventures is a trip to the Comcast Center . Visitors are given 3D glasses to view amazingly realistic holiday images on a 2,000 square foot LED screen. Snow scenes, floating dancers and children singing Christmas carols serve to lift everyone's spirit. The show ends on a note of loud applause!

Today was both a day of exploration and enjoyment! The Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion , the only authentically restored Victorian house museum and garden in Philadelphia, hosted a Dickens Christmas Party. Beautiful Decor was the backdrop for "making merry" in a grand way. In attendance were Louisa May Alcott, Charles Dickens and the Ghosts of Christmas Present!
