Swiss family Sbisa celebrates Christmas with Flyers
By Sam Carchidi
Inquirer Staff Writer
They are a little more than 4,000 miles away from their home in Switzerland and temporarily living in a Center City hotel. Their Christmas tree is, well, not exactly the type you'll see in It's a Wonderful Life.
The tree is about as big as a paper cup and is supposed to magically grow when given some water.
"It was this big," said Isabella Sbisa, the mother of Philadelphia's most popular 18-year-old athlete, Flyers defenseman Luca Sbisa, "and now it's up to this."
She expanded her fingers from two to four inches.
Isabella Sbisa sat in the Flyers' family room, nestled off a long hallway in the innards of the Wachovia Center, as she ate breakfast the other day with her husband, Massimo, and 20-year-old daughter, Chiara.
