On Saturday, December 7, the Phillie Phanatic flipped the switch to light up the Christmas tree at Citizens Bank Park. The lighting was part of the annual Holiday Sale and Tree Lighting Event at the Majestic Clubhouse Store at Citizens Bank Park. The Phanatic's mom, Phobe, Christmas carolers and fans were there to greet the Phanatic and Mickey Morandini, who joined the festivities this year. The two arrived on a fire truck to the delight of the crowd.
Volunteers from the USO were also on hand to load a truck with stockings stuffed with Phillies treats that will be delivered to our troops overseas. The Phanatic wants to thank all our men and women of our armed services for their service and he wants to wish them a Happy Holiday season!
The Phanatic's mom, Phoebe, has unexpectedly donated the Phillie Phanatic's lucky jersey to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and the Phanatic wants it back. When he arrives at the Hall of fame, the museum magically comes to life as some of baseball's all-time greatest players and some of his old friends help him along the way.
The Phanatic is in for the surprise of his life when he finally finds his lucky jersey!
