Lord & Taylor Holiday Light Show
Since 1956, there has been a sort of "multi-media" show at Lord & Taylor's (formerly Wanamaker's). Dancing water fountains, organ music, lights, moving figures and narrative present a Christmas story that no one can remember afterwards, though it's wonderful to watch. Children sit on the floor of the Grand Court and watch the story played out on the four-story-high velvet curtain of the Grand Court atrium. Free admission.

As a little girl my mothers boss would take my mother and I to the Wanamaker Light Show and then we would have lunch at restaurant at Wanamakers. When my children were growing up we would go every year. Now,I am looking forward to taking my granddaugther to see the ligth show.
When I was a small child my mother and Aunt would take us into to Philadelphia every year and we would frist see the christmas light show and then have a visit with Santa. Now it's my turn to take my grandaughter with me and enjoy what I enjoyed as a child myself.
This was a must for our family when i was growing up, it was not Christmas until we saw the light show @ Wanamakers, it always kicked off the shopping for us and just made everyone happy to be their together. Take your family you'll be happy you did!
I remember visiting the light show when I was in 3rd grade. When I became an adult, I wanted to relive this experience, so every year my friends and family take a trip to Philly during the holiday season to relive this experience. It is great to watch on the floor, or... get there EARLY and grab a bite to eat in the resturant where you can view the entire lighted greeting card unfold before your eyes while you dine on a snack or lunch. This is a MUST for young and old alike. Make this part of your holiday memories this year.
The Lord & Taylor Store - They had a beautiful light show that our family meets from all over and goes to it at least once a Christmas season. Even though the store has been sold several times it always continued the light show. It has been running for at least 33 years continuously that we have been coming. The lights moved to music way ahead of today's computers from the first time we ever saw it. It is part of our Christmas tradition.
