Like many places that have cute little historic-y towns in The Great Suburbia of the Northeast, we have a nice selection of Christmas-themed events to crash in the Philly area. My favorite is still the one in New Castle, Delaware, because the setting is so perfect for a "Dickens Christmas"! Pretty places rank high in my book.
Robin, Mr Dedicated, and Yours Truly. Usually for An 1860s Christmas Thing I like to wear my cand-stripe-plaid taffeta dress, but considering the wet, plus this was an outfit I hadn't worn yet, I decided to wear this outfit.

It was mizzling when we got there, and for a while afterward, but it didn't get quite into full-on rain. And the weather cleared later in the afternoon; by sunset you could even see the sky! It got chilly and quite windy, and I sternly told Mr Dedicated that if he lost his hat out on the very windy pier, he needn't expect another one. It was stuck on pretty well though. Happily.
