CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman’s traditional Christmas pyramid, or Weihnachtspyramide, located next to the Cullman County Museum at 211 Second Ave. NE, will be lit Friday, Nov. 25 at 6 p.m. Debuting in 2019, Cullman’s Christmas pyramid, standing a grand 30-feet-tall, was created by Erzgebirgiisehe Holzkunst Gahlenz in Germany and honors Cullman’s proud German heritage. 

The six levels of Cullman’s pyramid depict various scenes including the base level of the nativity featuring Mother Mary, Joseph, the manger and the wise men, the second with an homage to a modern holiday theme with Santa Claus and others with scenes and people specific to Cullman. While traditional tabletop Christmas pyramids are powered by candles, the enormity of Cullman’s pyramid necessitates a power motor to rotate the six levels. 

A surprise special guest has been confirmed to be an integral part of Friday evening’s celebration.
