Christmas traditions begin in Albany

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - People are already gearing up for the Christmas as Thanksgiving week draws to a close.

For most in Albany, going to Eames to find a tree is a Christmas tradition that starts right after Thanksgiving.

"For us we eat and get up from the dinner table let me go to work and so games on then," Glenn Eames said.

For others it's more than just picking out a tree. Working at Eames may be a new tradition for Lisa Nuley.

"If it goes well this year, then I come back next year and the year after. You know just keep on going," Lisa Nuley said.

Lisa puts together the reefs at Eames. Christmas traditions aren't new to her.

"I've helped with the Salvation Army, I have gave gift basket before," Nuley said.

Knowing that special place Eames has for so many people's Christmas tradition, Nuley is excited to see where this takes her.

"This is my first day so we are going to see how it works," Nuley said.

Because at Eames, Christmas tradition is what it's all about.

"We are thankfully a part of a lot of people's Christmas in Albany and that's just a huge thing to know that you are that special part," Eames said.

Eames is located near the intersection of Dawson Road and Slappey Boulevard, and will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. throughout the Christmas season.
