Each year, a collection of entrepreneurial vendors set up shop near City Hall and display their items for people to see and buy.
For some small business owners, Christmas Village represents an opportunity for them to see familiar faces return from previous years.
For some visitors, however, Christmas Village is a yearly tradition.
“It’s pretty great … I love the vibes, nice people. All the local shops, it’s a very great market,” said Vorrapard Kumthongde, who is from Brooklyn, New York, and visits Christmas Village in Philadelphia on a yearly basis.
People of all ages often find use in Christmas Village because it provides an opportunity to see great merchandise, can put people at ease, and help them enjoy the holiday spirit.
