From SEPTA's Santa Express to ice skating at City Hall, Philly is getting all decked out for the holidays.

It’s no secret that we adore the fall colors here in the city, but man does the holiday season really give us the feels as well (we blame Trading Places).

With its seemingly endless amount of rowhomes decked out with all kinds of lights and decorations, people buzzing around for that perfect gift, and subway cars dolled up as the Santa Express, the city has a rising energy about it–even as the temperatures dip below freezing and we head towards a New Year.

In order to capture a little slice of that renewed hope that comes with the holiday season, we dug through the crates of #PhillyScape on Instagram to bring you a few candid images to help you get in the festive mood. From ice skating with a burrito (!) to “AMOR” on the Rocky steps, it’s the most won-der-ful time of year here in Philly.
