Alabama Christmas Part 2

Posted on Thu, Dec 16, 2010 at 10:03 AM

I love that in just a few short days the stores and businesses will close and the city will once again shut down for that once a year event of Christmas eve. I love that even the Tim Horton's light are shut off for the rare evening and everything is quite. That no one can stress about the last minute thing to buy because there's nothing open. I love that everyone is home, hopefully with family or someone they love. I'm grateful for the friends and family I will get to visit, and the look on everyone's faces when they open that gift that was so hard to find. Most of all I'll love the quiet evening of Christmas eve when my son is asleep and the hours I'll spend with my partner trying to put together his toys. It will all be worth it seeing his face glow all morning... all to the sounds of Alabama Christmas. —Real Chick
