What We Are Thankful For
Modern day Thanksgiving down South typically involves family, food, and football! Southern Accents will be closed Thursday and Friday to allow our team members the opportunity to spend time with family and friends. While we all look forward to the festivities, and especially the food, we took a little time at our weekly team meeting to share some of the things for which we are truly thankful. Each of us were thankful for the obvious, our family, good friends, favorable health, warm shelter, and a paycheck at the end of each week. While this seems like an obvious list, we are keenly aware that not everyone enjoys such luxuries and that nothing on this list should ever be taken for granted. This caused us to think a little deeper and reflect on some of the non-obvious things that we are thankful for.
We've stated many times in the past that the SA team consists of a group of talented artists and craftsmen. As such, we are thankful for the arts and for the opportunity that we are afforded to be creative. As one team member stated, "it is through art that I feel closest to God." One of the greatest treasures in life is to figure out what you love and then be able to make a living doing what you love. This statement rings true for many of us at Southern Accents. Having the opportunity to create, whether it is a work of art crafted from wood, a beautiful photograph crafted through a lens, or an innovative design crafted on paper, we are blessed with the opportunity to pursue our passions through our vocation.
As we take time this week to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday we would also like to say that we are thankful for each and every one of YOU! Without the support of our fabulous customers and wonderful community, we could not do what we do. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity each week to pursue our passions and share our creative thoughts and ideas with you. We wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Christmas In Cullman
Next weekend is the annual Christmas in Cullman sponsored by the Cullman Downtown Merchants Association. Store fronts throughout the downtown area have "decked the halls" and children will be anxiously awaiting the arrival of Santa! The Grand Marshall of this year's Christmas Parade, which will make it's way down 1st Ave beginning at 6:00 pm, is James Spann. The parade route will run from The Busy Bee to Festhalle Market. After the parade there will be activities for the entire family in and around Depot Park including live entertainment, pictures with Santa, and the tree lighting ceremony. Many of the downtown shops will be open extended hours! Plan now to join us as for all the festivities as we kick off the Christmas holiday downtown style!
