Your kids, grandkids, or even you yourself may soon be sitting underneath the Christmas tree eagerly awaiting to see what Santa brought you this year. What would be some great gifts for the entire state? Here’s what’s on Pennsylvania’s wish list this year…
2. Cold, beautiful, soft flakes of snow.
This unseasonably warm weather is getting kind of creepy. Anyway...
3. Cheesesteaks for everyone.
Let them rain down from on high like manna from Heaven.
4. A Superbowl win.
I think the Eagles deserve one, considering they've gotten close so many times and never taken it... Though we'd settle for a Steelers win, too.
5. Better liquor laws.
Want to enjoy a nice bottle of wine with a friend on a Sunday? TOO BAD, YOU CAN'T. Seriously, the liquor laws in PA are a bit puritanical, don't you think?
6. Continued revitalization of our cities.
A few years ago, Bethlehem developed the area surrounding the steel stacks and built a casino, and in the subsequent years, Allentown has been working to revitalize its downtown. Pittsburgh, on the other side of the state, has been appearing increasingly often on lists of the most livable places in the country. Go Pennsylvania cities! I hope this trend continues.
7. Our very own beach.
Not going to happen anytime soon, but a girl can dream, right?
8. Lower taxes.
9. Shelter for the homeless, jobs for the unemployed, and medical care for everyone who needs it.
Not just Pennsylvania, but the world, would be a much better place if every person was able to have their basic needs met. That's something we can all agree on.
10. A happy and healthy year ahead.
2016 is gearing up to be a big year for our country. Let's make it count.
What would you add to this list? Surely there’s plenty more you’d like to see. Share down below, and happy holidays!
