Christmas in AlabamaThe first state in the Union to declare Christmas a legal holiday in 1836, the "Heart of Dixie" has always held a special place in the hearts of Alabamians.

Today, Alabama is second-to-none in anticipating a grand Christmas celebration, with colorful lighting displays in places like Montgomery, Mobile, and Huntsville that make the season extra bright ...

According to parade organizers, the largest Christmas parade in the state is the annual West Alabama Christmas Parade in Tuscaloosa. The 15-block long parade route in downtown includes marching bands, colorful floats, choral groups and, of course, Santa.

Another holiday fun fact? Birmingham native Hugh Martin wrote "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" for Judy Garland who first sang the holiday classic in the hit film "Meet Me in St. Louis" in 1944.
