Ok, I’ve got to admits it. I like seeing Christmas Trees.
Yep, I’m sort of like a White House or Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree geek. There is just something about visiting a Christmas Tree in front of City Hall or in a park and town center that says “community.”
Public Christmas Trees
Over this past weekend, despite 48 hours of continuous rain, I hopped from city to city to see this year’s public Christmas trees.
I went from Bessemer to Trussville, traveling more than a 100 miles crisscrossing Jefferson County. Obviously, we didn’t catch all 30+ municipalities in the county, but I did my best. If I missed your city, send Bham Now a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on Facebook, and we’ll update this story.
