Not surprisingly, this week’s community calendar is a little on the light side. Given that this is the week leading up to Christmas Day, fewer events are being held – but that does *not* mean great opportunities aren’t around for family holiday fun. Check out Holidays on the River – go ice skating! Or visit the Tuscaloosa Barnyard’s Country Christmas and enjoy a lovely festive hayride and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus. You can also check out a live nativity pageant in Northport!

Whatever you do this week, we hope it is relatively stress-free and enjoyable. Have a wonderful holiday!
