The Christmas Bus
If you haven’t heard or seen the Christmas Bus, you’re missing out!  Danny bought the 1972 bus from the First Baptist Church more than 30 years ago.  What started as a quirky idea has turned into a Calhoun County tradition.  The old blue bus is now every color of the rainbow with lights, wreaths, a nativity scene, American flags on each side in lights and your favorite Christmas carols (Jimmy Buffett Christmas Island--Fats Domino Christmas Gumbo and many more) blaring from speakers on the inside and outside of the bus.  Every year, from early December until after the New Year, Danny Ryals cranks the old bus, and goes on tour.  He picks up kids from all over Calhoun and surrounding counties, visits nursing homes, church groups, and Christmas parties spreading Christmas cheer and holiday tunes wherever he goes.  Over the years, he has treated literally thousands of kids to a ride on the bus, as well as brought out the kid in every adult that has climbed aboard.
