Holiday Events 2013

We have a home on the coast of Alabama near where my husband works. Our birthplace is in Birmingham, about 250 miles north of our coastal home and that is where both of our families live. The following is a list of events in both places that make the holiday season even more fun. Be sure to check the dates, as some of these events are today and tomorrow only.
