When you live in an area that was the hit recording capital of the world in the sixties, you have a lot of music during Christmas. A lot of the musicians — many in the Hall of Fame — are still belting out the tunes. Some had events that were fundraisers for local charities. This time of year the weather can be hard to keep up with; temperatures can change by thirty degrees or more from one day to the next.

The Christmas season started off with the Trees of Christmas reception at the Tennessee Valley Museum of Art, accompanied by music played on a baby grand. Twelve trees are creatively decorated by the community and seem to get better each year. This year, antique doors with wreaths were added. I didn’t get to stay too long, as the Tuscumbia Christmas parade was moved to the same night because of bad weather earlier in the week.
