After Checking Out this entry today, read my Philly Mag column on a pretty big Holiday Party that happened last night:

This year TD Bank distributed a whole lotta cute hats to the festive feeling holiday goers who attended the Christmas Tree lighting in Rittenhouse Square on Wednesday night.There was a bustling crowd that I would estimate at a little over 500 peeps on hand for the lighting, many more than in years gone by. Could have been the warm than normal weather, maybe moms and dads want to educate their kids on the Occupy Philly movement, who showed up about an hour before the ceremony, and left before the lights came on, or it could have been an early visit to Santa at TD bank after the lighting.
I ran into a lot of folks that follow me on twitter including Stacy, Haley, Emma and Margaret Brennan. Stacy tweets as @3girlsandswirls Follow her, she’s fun.
After a bit, and the lights came on
