a little bit. the rush of finding the perfect holiday gift, for some it's actually fun not so much if you're running up credit cards for your purchases. what are your options for staying on top of your credit cards this season? let's find out. we're cashing in. you know when it comes to plastic americans say deal me in. we have a record number of credit cards, the average con i'mer has 2.6 cards and their kate spade clutch. that's a lot of plastic. easy to understand why. have you ever ride to rent a car without one? impossible. the fact is we really don't need all the cards in our wallet. here's a few tips of when to get rid of it and how to get rid of it when you no longer need it. just like in real life relationships just need to end for whatever reason. the same holds true with your credit card. the reality is if you haven't dated in over a year you're
7:40 am
probably not going to need it again. you don't need the cards laying around cluttering up your sock drawer. it will hold your credit store, but in the long term you'll be just fine and you're betting off without it. time to move on. 18, that's the magic number. i'm talking about 18 percent. that's the average interest on a credit card. if you've got decent credit and you're paying more than that. not so good. check credit transfer your balance over, break up with the old once. finally sometimes relationships end through no fault of either party. same holds true of either card. an old gym member high pressure or maybe a prescription that you can't seem to cancel. if your credit card company can't help you get rid of them
7:41 am
and you've tried everything you can do, well, if they're not part of the solution, they're part of the problem. close the account, start over. okay, you've paid the decision to end the relationship. bye-bye, credit card, but just like life, sometimes it's easier to begin a relationship than it is to end an relation high pressure. here's what you need to do, call your credit card company on the phone, tell them it's been great, but i'm out of here. they'll tell you you exactly what you need to do to close the car. sometimes breaking up is hard to do, but sometimes it's the right thing to do. i'm having a moment. i'm cashing out.

8:18 am
across town. looking at ultimate doppler showing us moderate rains as you get into chester county. the rain will continue to progress off towards the east and by say 1:00 i think it's still going to be over south jersey, but everybody is done with the rain around say 3:00. that's when we give the all clear in terms of rain. 31 in the poconos to near 40 here in town. 41 in millville, 45-degrees in atlantic city. five to ten mile per hour winds out there this morning so that is kind of adding insult to injure. it is not the best feeling morning and certainly not the best looking morning with all the rain atown. the storm system is hung up across the east. it's a different type of weather where they're talking blizzard alerts across the northern planes. this type of year it could be a whole lot colder. 47 here in philadelphia. the mild air down to the south. there is going to be some mild air working up out of the south.

8:31 am
not deterring am from an annual tradition in south philadelphia. sabina kuriakose is there. people have been lined up all morning and people having a great time. >>reporter: they're still having a great time and people are still coming in. i want to he who you an article on the wall here. it's over 20 years ago. we interviewed a couple folks in mind. one of them, michael defrancisco than a he had his son with i am h. guess who we're going to event view now, michael and his son mark. we just showed him the article that you pointed out to me. that's unbelievable. it's been hanging there for the past 20 years. it's really been something we look forward to every time we come in. you said do we have a copy of it? >> no, we don't.
8:32 am
we know it's not going anywhere. every time we come in. we see the family. it's really about the experience, not b just about the great food as i told this lady next to me. you've been coming here since you were three. >> that's correct. how did it all start in. >> my parents were friendly with joe termini, the founder who lived in enna sicily and it was a neighborhood bakery back then. and every christmas it became a tradition to come here for the cannolis and all the fine pastries that were made here. after my dad passed away, i continued the rain across digs with mark and my other son john and we've been coming every year since. what does it mean to be able to pass it on for generations. tradition is very important in an italian family and in most families so we right to continue the tradition of what my mother did and what my grandmother did and migrate mother did and it's
8:33 am
important. it's very important to have the tradition. i think it's beautiful. mark, you heard your dad talking about it, what do you think when you hear him talking about the tradition and just being here. christmas eve, you know. it's inning because you don't realize when a tradition is happening, it kind of happens. at some point you realize this is a tradition. there's a tradition now. you feel the honor to be able to carry it on. i have to give a shout jut to my brother who is here every year. he's running a little late with his daughter sophia. three generations in one store. when sophia gets here, right. >> yes. > hurry up. we'll be here. >> we'll be off at 9:00 and run down there reel quick.
8:34 am
manning put it up for grabs. it's intercepted. taking it away, terrence brooks. let's get on enthusiasm. the streak is over. the eagles beat the giants at the link, ending a five-game losing streak. we've got the guys, sean and sean to break it down. good morning to you you. >> good morning, early one. it's the early look, okay. it's christmas eve. we're excited the eagles got early christmastime. they finally came clutch. finally. it took the seventh try to do so. on and 6 before thursday's game when it comes to seven points or less. they finally came through in a clutch and it's mow meant up. i know it's a separate season next year, but still you could look back on this and saying okay, we can do this because this would have been in their
8:35 am
head all off season if they weren't able to come up with a win in a clutch situation. carson wentz gets it done early the defense gets it done late and this ends a lot of the questions when it comes to coaching. i think it does, because i think one win separates and you could say, okay, this is doug's rookie year, he finally got it done at the end. this can carry over. a lot of people were calling for his job now. i'm not one of them. i am not after one year. i don't think you should do it after one year. he deserves another season no matter where he's the at. i still find myself scratching my head with some of his play calling. doug, he's had a couple of those this year that make you really scratch your head on fourth downs. he wants to go for it. he goes against conventional wisdom. he has to improve on that and i think he will. we're calling into question those plays because they didn't
8:36 am
get them. if they got them, they go for the win the week before. if they get it, we're like look at the energy, look at how bold he is for doing this. >> i 100 percent agree. on top of that, they're not going to the playoffs. these are things where you're saying, you know what, who cares. he's been coaching this way since week one. that's the problem. he won't change his ways and i think there's a time where you have to kick the goal and get the points in the nfl. i think some of those plays are just go for it and see what the situation is. see what the heart is. fourth and whatever on the one yard line. listen, go for it. what are we kicking the field goal for? the season is over. do we get kind of a look at what the team may look like if he was there all season. >> absolutely. he was one of the best tackles in the game before he got
8:37 am
suspended. the 40-yard touchdown pass you see lane johnson giving carson wentz an extra. i think ultimately this season took a turn when they lost lane johnson. it's all in the record, they're 4 and 1 with lane johnson, 2 and 8 without him. at the same time it's a ripple effect. look at what happens every other spot. all of a united states sen, everyone is in position. this he know what they have to on. they know who to trust and it's as simple as that. people work best when they're in their original position. with lane out, they're out of position. even with play calling he tried to do some of the play calls, but he was getting blown up because everyone wasn't in their spot. we have the grammies music roling in the background to wrap us up. we got more coming up game day live at 10:00. we'll break it all down. we'll look ahead to the final game in the off season, outlook.
