The day upon which most of Alabama waits for 365 days a year has arrived. That’s right, in case you were so fixated on Black Friday that you missed the news, it’s time for the Iron Bowl, that much-anticipated gridiron contest between Alabama and Auburn.
If you’re like me, you can almost taste it already. The Thanksgiving holiday is just around the corner, and the anticipation of the annual turkey-day feast makes my mouth water just thinking about it. For many of us the memories of Thanksgivings past bring a warm feeling to our hearts, and perhaps a little phantom indigestion to our bellies. For others, it just means plenty of stress.
On my way in to the office this morning, I saw them hanging the holiday snowflakes on the light poles along Highway 31 in Alabaster. I also noticed the other day that Magic 96.5 has already started playing their non-stop Christmas music. And, as I drove through my neighborhood last night, it was hard to miss that one of my neighbors already has his Christmas tree up and decorated with bright lights.
