Today is National Alabama Day – December 14, 2021
National Alabama Day is on December 14 each year. There’s so much to love about this day. It’s a homage to Alabama — a state steeped in fascinating history that significantly influenced the course of American history and politics. Alabama, with its beautiful people, landscapes, food, and culture, fought hard to join the Union. The state epitomizes Southern hospitality and warm nostalgia all around. A special day for an incredibly unique place — here’s to you, Alabama!
