Third annual NEast Philly holiday song: 12 Days of NEastmas

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, which means it’s time for a NEast Philly tradition: our 12 Days of NEastmas holiday song.

This song, which first ran on Nov. 27, 2009, after we felt the Northeast really needed its own carol, has become a tradition.

You can click below for an instrumental version of the song, with our original NEast-y lyrics. 

On the first day of Christmas, my Northeast love gave to me a parking spot at Franklin Mills Mall.
