Default Xmas New Orleans style

We are at our daughters for XMas in NO. Here they light bonfires on the leevies of the Mississippi to show Santa the way. Lots of bonfires line the banks on the river and lots of do-it-yourself fireworks.
Guess when there is no chance of snow, you'll find other ways to
make the holiday special

if you ever get a chance to come here for XMas, I would see the bonfires. They are pretty cool!

Sounds ...different. I was in New Orleans in June. Stayed on Royal St. near canal. Definitely a different culture than the midwest.

Merry Christmas! Hope crawfish ettoufle is not on the menu for tomorrow. Biegnets from Cafe Du Monde sure sound good for Christmas morning though.
