Being one of the few natives, thought I would share what it has been like for me growing up in Atanta....
Riding the Pink Pig...the real one, the monorail over the roof of Rich's downtown.
Visiting the Santa at Sears in Buckhead...now the site of Nava, one of Andy and my favorite places to go out on a date.
Rich's Great Tree Downtown...we would drive down on Christmas Eve to look at it, and guess what....Santa always came while we were driving looking at the lights.
"What time is the Midnight mass"...this is the most popular question asked when you work at the Catholic Church of people calling in. Mom was secretary and I worked part time, our answer "the doors open at 10, the choir starts singing at 11,mass starts at midnight, get there early if you want a seat"...I have no idea what the answer is these days as its always been too crowded for me, we go to the vigil service around 4 or 4:30. It is still a family joke for us to say "what time is the midnight mass"...well DUH!
Egg Nog Ice Cream.
Driving around Buckhead looking at christmas lights.
Eating McDonalds on Christmas Eve...before riding downtown. I hated meat, so I just got fries. Mom never made dinner on xmas eve.
Listening to the radio station that had the satellite tracking Santa.
