A slight sense of normalcy is starting to return along with the Christmas spirit. Savannah officially kicked off the Holidays with a return to an in-person gathering for the annual lighting of the Christmas tree. With the flip of a switch State Rep. Edna Jackson, Lowell Kronowitz, owner of Levy Jewelers, and City Manager Jay Melder made the intersection of Broughton and Bull Streets a little brighter and a lot more festive Friday night.
