Despite the city of Birmingham’s cancellation, several communities still held lighting ceremonies. They even got a little creative. Homewood, for example, held a “driveby” parade after they lit the famous Homewood Christmas Star.
Here is a fun fact. That star weighs 200 pounds, and the city started lighting it nearly 70 years ago in 1951.
