  3. The Fountains were lost in 2000. Water and Electricity don't mix unfortunately. I would like them back too.

  6. I grew up going to see the Wanamaker's light show every Christmas. And we always went down Santa Lane to see Santa. Plus we shopped without our parents in Santa's Workshop. It was an amazing part of Christmas for me each year. I miss that.
