Philly Christmas Village

Yesterday, I spent some time in Philadelphia taking pictures of this and that – including this Christmas Village.

  3. Megan and I walked through there on the way to Starbucks. Perfect for getting into the Christmas spirit!!

  4. Charming photos of Christmas village, Sharon! Though, I’m surprised you were able to even see anything here in Philly that day, as the fog was crazy! (Love the picture of City Hall through that mist, though!)
