It has been shining upon our sliver of magic in regards to food, beer, tech/innovation and tourism, in 2016, quite a lot. We are very proud to announce that yet another travel blog has recognized our Magic!
How many days until Christmas? JK! It’s 362. On a real note, here’s what you actually want to know:
Bham Now’s Top 10 We’ve put together, just for you, our most read stories since the beginning of time (well, the beginning of time for us, August, 2016!). Personally, I think the coolest thing about the list is that the subjects range across the board; from sports to nature to food and business, there’s a little something for everyone. Maybe one of these stories is what brought you to Bham Now in the first place… Regardless, we’re so happy you’re here with us!
This year two holiday traditions overlap, and I think that’s just perfect for Christmas in America, 2016 style. Christmas Eve and Hanukkah begin on December 24. What a time to celebrate with one another, no?
Earlier this week, we at Bham Now had the idea to take photos of the Christmas tree in downtown Birmingham. After we took pictures of the 2-3 story tree, we were pleasantly surprised to see City Hall lit up in “Christmas green.”
This gave us an idea. Wouldn’t it be nice to take pictures of Christmas trees in front of city halls, civic centers and at parks around the Birmingham metro area?
Below is a slideshow of pictures we took this week of Christmas trees in Birmingham, Trussville, Gardendale, Homewood, Vestavia, Fultondale and Hoover.
We know there are many more places. Please feel free to email us this week, pictures of Christmas trees and lights around city hall. civic centers and parks in your community at email@example.com . We’ll do a “City Hall” Christmas Trees and Lights II slideshow later this week if we get additional photos from you.
