Pictured above is the 2004 Center City Philadelphia Lord & Taylor holiday light show (formerly the Wanamaker light show). Wouldn’t it look better with a big magic Christmas tree, some colored fountains, and a Santa train with animated wheels?
I think so too. Alas, for the past few years we’ve watched as crucial elements of the light show are cruelly stripped away. Click here for evidence: the light show isn’t what it used to be. I still shed a tear during the finale, though.
