After Eagles win, Philadelphia schools to close on Thursday

Christmas came early this weekend for Saint Nick (Foles) and the Philadelphia Eagles. With a 41-33 Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday evening, Philadelphia ended a 58 year championship drought.

How will the city celebrate?

The Philadelphia School district announced its canceling school on Thursday to offer students "the chance to witness history." The parade is scheduled to start at 11 a.m. at Broad and Pattison, and heads north to the Art Museum.

Sunday's victory marks the Eagles first Super Bowl victory in franchise history and their first championship since 1960.

City officials originally thought about having the championship parade on Wednesday, but the Mother Nature had better ideas. Snow and Rain are forecast for the Greater Philadelphia area with 1 to 3 inches of snow expected.

Something tells me Eagles fans wouldn't mind the weather...

"Oh, man, Philly is crazy right now I bet," Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox told ESPN. "The city probably won't sleep for a week. It's so exciting, I can't wait to be on that bus going down Broad Street and seeing the passion of these fans when we get back there."
