This was our towns first Christmas on Main celebration and I think it went pretty well!
When you live in Alabama there’s always plenty to do at Christmas time.
We have carriage rides, musicals, parades and dinners galore. There are always houses decorated with lights from roof to floor and a dozen or so Santa’s Walking Down different streets.
There was cookie decoration, hot choclate making and an entire Cherokee history Museum full of Christmas trees. I liked the Cardinal tree the best reminding us of loved ones that have passed away that we will see again someday.
Another favorite was the snow machine. It had been 83 degrees all day so we were pretty sure no snow was in our forecast. Thanks to a Christmas miracle and our mayor we had snow in the pines! Okay it might have been dish soap but it proved the exact same purpose. Making children happy.
There was a live nativity scene complete with animals and humans. It was set up by lookout mountain cowboy church and was incredible. Plenty of babies were out trying to celebrate their first and second Christmas time.
The carrige ride horse was a large Clydesdale but I think the animal that got the most attention was the goat on a leash. Very cosmopolitan for the big city. Luckily the goat was nice and didn’t mind getting all the love.
Christmas in Dixie may not look like FAO SCHWARTZ but we still love it and wouldn’t trade it for anything.
