When I was little, the holidays were full of excitement. Even the slightest chance of receiving that year's coveted "must-have" toy was enough to have butterflies for weeks! However, as a parent, I realize that it isn't the things we have as much as the memories we make that keep the holidays special.
For great ideas on how to create those memories, turn to our Events Calendar which is filled with many activities. See Santa arrive by chopper to the American Helicopter Museum. Watch the re-enactment of General Washington crossing the Delaware. Experience the one-of-a-kind Seaport Parade of Lights. Or, visit East Passyunk Avenue's Ice Carving Festival as it is transformed into a winter wonderland.
