PHILADELPHIA — Ho, ho, hold on there! The Philadelphia City Hall Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Love Park on Wednesday night was marred by a fight between two women who, reportedly, were jostling for a better view.

Television news crews captured the fracas as Mayor Michael Nutter and other dignitaries looked on.

Neither woman was charged with a crime after several others in the crowd stepped in to separate the women.

The ceremony continued as scheduled after the fight ended.
