PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Two of Philadelphia’s holiday traditions are open to the public beginning on Black Friday.

The four story Christmas Light Show has been delighting families for the past 58 years. It takes those gathered in the Grand Court of Macy’s Center City on a journey through Christmas stories like ‘The’Nutcracker’ and ‘Frosty The Snowman.’

More than 100,000 energy-efficient multicolored LED lights are used. The Light Show takes place every two hours starting at 10 a.m.

And up on the third floor, don’t forget to visit Dicken’s Village, where you walk through 1840’s London and encounter animated scenes of ‘A Christmas Carol.’
