Philly seems to have a new holiday tradition.
The giant yellow noodle is back in JFK Plaza - Love Park - with the untarping scheduled for today.
If it helps, think of it as a collosal yellow smile that funds the nearby holiday tree, instead of a crass pitch for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.
"You know you love it," the noodle says, just as it has in other cities, including Philadelphia late last year.
Thanksgiving Day, the 60 shops of the annual Christmas Village will open, offering an array of merchandise, including jewelry, ornaments and other arts and crafts, as well as waffles and gingerbread among its "food, drinks and sweets," organizers say.
