The Philadelphian’s 13-Step Guide to the Best Holiday Ever

Franklin Square’s Electrical Spectacle Holiday Light Show balances bulbs (more than 50,000 of them, dancing to a soundtrack by the Philly POPS) with booze (a winter beer garden each weekend, and plenty of fire pits) and shopping. 6th and Race streets, Philly.

"Man is born free and everywhere he is in chains," wrote Rousseau, lamenting the shackles of modernity's frenetic demands nearly 270 years ago. "Man is condemned to be free," argued Sartre, sounding bitter in 1948.
