Christmas Traditions

Now that the kids are getting a little older, we have been trying to start some fun holiday traditions. I had heard from several people that Macy's in Philadelphia had a very nice Christmas display and light show. So, one weekend we decided to catch a train over to Philly to partake in the festive activities.

We have a commuter train a few blocks from our house, so it is actually really convenient to take the train to the city. The kids were beyond excited. THEY GOT TO RIDE ON A TRAIN! If you aren't aware, that is like the coolest thing to EVER happen to a kid. Honestly, Porgie and Izzy liked the train ride more than the actual Christmas exhibit.

Here are some pictures of the kids on the train (Izzy looks mad, but he was actually in a pretty good mood that day)...



The lights and Christmas tree...
The Christmas display depicted various scenes from the story A Christmas Carol. The characters were animated. It was really cute...









The line was insanely long, but we still had a great day. We'll definitely be going back again next year. If you live in the area, I highly recommend it. And here is the best part - it is FREE. Nothing beats free.
