My great Aunt Ruth used to just say Merry Merry. We hope that you had a very Merry Christmas Day if you celebrate and continue to to enjoy the holidays for the rest of the week. We saw this photo on Twitter at the beginning of December and I’ve been meaning to share this tweet and photo on the blog ever since (with the permission of the author).

Light up night means Downtown Pittsburgh will be hustling and bustling and basically looking like a city after 5pm.
If the crowds aren’t for you – never fear – there are a bunch of light up night festivities happening in neighborhood business districts all around town. You can get all of the Christmas-light filled fun with out the chaos.
