When it comes to describing the endless list of holiday-season activities that Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has to offer, it's hard to know where to begin. The historic city is lit up with Christmas lights from every corner, and it seems like every museum, performing arts group, and landmark has a special holiday activity for visitors. One of the most joyous things to do in Philly during the holidays is to bundle up and stroll downtown. Elfreth's Alley, one of the oldest streets in America, is lit by candles and celebrates with traditional 17th-century decor. Macy's presents its outdoor light show and organ concert every day through the end of the year, and the holiday model train display at Reading Terminal impresses kids and adults alike.

Christmas performances abound in the City of Brotherly Love, with the Walnut Street Theatre putting on "A Christmas Carol," the Kimmel Center hosting the very popular "Holiday Pops" music series, and the Academy of Music housing the classic ballet "The Nutcracker." The Philadelphia Orchestra plays several holiday-themed shows, and the Rockettes even travel south for a few performances of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. For those celebrating Chanukah, the Gershman Y holds its annual "Latkepalooza" gourmet potato pancake fest in early December, and the National Museum of American Jewish History features insightful exhibits about being Jewish in a Christmas-celebrating environment. The African American museum even holds a Kwanzaa celebration and exhibit in the days immediately after Christmas. This list features only some of the things to do in Philly during the holiday season, though there are countless more activities for families to enjoy in December in this city.
