Over the years, I have spent many holiday seasons in several different places. Being from Florida, I have spent a majority of them there. However, I have spent others in places such as Pennsylvania, New York and North Carolina.

This year will be my first in Alabama though, and my first in Chilton County.

It is an exciting time. Lights are popping up all over the place, decorations are being brought out and trees are on sale all over.

There are tree lightings and parades scheduled to celebrate the season. There are Christmas movies on several channels.

There is a reason why it is considered to be the most wonderful time of the year, and this year, I am excited to be able to celebrate it in a place where I never have before.

I am ready to enjoy the cold weather, drink hot cocoa and put up decorations. I am ready to watch the parades and see they joy on people’s faces when trees are lit up in the different towns in Chilton County.

Many of these activities will be a first for me, which is why I am thrilled to be here and be a part of them.
