Christmas down in New Orleans (Click there)
You need to listen to that song, just to see how we celebrate Christmas. Pure New Orleans Jazz!
New Orleans is such a beautiful city. With houses that are a couple hundred years old and still magnificent. People think that New Orleans is all Bourbon Street mess and crime, but it is so much more.
Really good people live there too.
In City Park the city puts up lights that belonged (click there too) to Al Copeland, who started Popeye's Famous Fried Chicken. He and my dad were good buddies. Mr. Al used to put up tons of lights and things in his front yard, but it caused so many traffic jams the neighborhood made him take it down. He donated it to the City to be put in City Park.
Of course there are the Bonfires along the Levee that are lit Christmas Eve (click here as well) night to light the way for Papa Noel. Gosh, they are spectacular!
you gotta see that Bonfire video, you can see the structures up and down the levee and the traffic getting ready for the lighting. And when they are lit.....Oh MY!
Papa Noel can't miss us here!
Happy Holidays to all my friends out there in Blogland. I can't wait for this year to end.
