South Jersey Holiday Tradition Is Ending
If you live in Cherry Hill, or anywhere in South Jersey, and you're a fan of Christmas light displays, you've probably seen or, at least, heard of the 2 homes on Mercer Street.
The Courier Post says that for over 20 years, the Italiano and Croge families, who live next to each other on Mercer Street, would go all out with their light displays.
Each holiday season, cars would line up to see the 2 homes, but unfortunately, it appears that the tradition has ended.
According to a heartbreaking post on Erika Italiano's Facebook page, says that due to the loss of family members, the light display will not go on.
Italiano said, "On behalf of the Italiano and Croge families, THANK YOU! Thank you to all of our neighbors, near and far, that have shared their joy with us year after year."
She also thanked the Cherry Hill Police and Cherry Hill Township "for graciously bearing with the traffic jams year after year."
