Christmas Love | Philly
Isabelle N December 21, 2015
Since my freshman year, the weekend trips off of my boarding school's campus have definitely improved. As it is my last year here, I have been trying to spend more time with my friends on these trips, whether we are on campus or roaming the streets of Philly. Last weekend, I ventured to Philly for a Christmas Market trip with some of my friends. We explored the plethora of stands along the perimeter of the famous Love Park, where I was succesful in some last minute Christmas gifts. Continuing on, there was a quaint ice rink adjacent to Penn Medicine and a massive, ornate tree surrounded by tourists and locals alike. Being consumed in homework at school, it rarely truly feels like Christmas, despite the Christmas caroling and gingerbread house making activities. But there's something about a city adorned in lights and scrumptious winter delights that makes the Christmas cheer more prevalent.
Although I do appreciate cities at Christmas, I will be leaving for Saint Lucia tomorrow. When you read this, I will hopefully be relaxing on the beach avoiding all responsibilities. OooOoh yeah. What are your plans for Christmas if you celebrate? xoxo Isabelle
