Although the person who encouraged me to do today's Phable spoke about it as a "South Philly thing" -- and it's definitely prevalent in that neighborhood -- I've noticed it all over as I'm running errands around the city. It's as strong a tradition in Frankford, for example, as it is in Fairmount.

If there's a house you pass by that really does it up to the nines, take a photo and send it to me
. I'll post them in this thread.
