It’s the New Year, hope everyone had a happy holiday season. Christmas cheer hit me after Christmas so I won’t feel too silly posting these in January. I still have to go through my pictures from the NYC Macy’s window. They were my favorite for 2015 and will hopefully get those up in a few days. This one is about Macy’s in Philly.
The day after Christmas we drove to Philly with our cousin and his girlfriend for food and holiday stuff.
We got a triple dose of holiday cheer that day. Before we went to Koziar’s Christmas Village we hit Macy’s to check out their holidays lights show.All the pics were taken with a wide angle lens. We wanted to pack light for this trip.
Macy’s is in the Wanamaker building. It’s a beautiful old building. Wanamaker’s was the first department store in Philly. You can read more about the history of the building here.
The Philly store was similar to the NY one with Peanuts in the window! I love Peanuts.
The light show was cute but it was a bit boring for us. The Dicken’s Village upstairs was a nice surprise.
After the light show we followed the crowd upstairs. We weren’t even sure where we were going. We were looking for ornaments to buy. We waited on line a bit and were trying to figure out if we were in line to see Santa. We weren’t, we were told he went back to the North Pole.
We found we were on our way to see Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.
The ghosts were a bit creepy.
The whole time we kept thinking of Scrooged with Bill Murray. I use to watch that a lot when I was little.
There was a lot of detail and thought put into this village.
Will Scrooge change his ways?
We all know how the story goes. Scoorge changed his ways and was no longer a Bah Humbag 🙂
