A Junkee Free-For-All in a New Orleans Gift Wrap

How we celebrate Christmas in New Orleans…

  1. New Orleans Holiday Style

    Rain Boots

    If you slap a Fleur de Lis on ANYTHING it makes the perfect Christmas gift

  2. In New Orleans we like to burn things, a tradition is the Christmas bonfire, they like to do this especially in the outlying parishes. It is usually done on Christmas Eve.
  3. I’m sure you’ve heard about Egg Nog – well we have Egg Nog Daiquiris.
  4. We have this bar called Snake and Jake’s Christmas Club Lounge, it’s scary in a fun sort of way. I don’t think I’ve ever walked in to Snake & Jake’s sober – most people can claim this fact also. It is completely lighted by Christmas lights – there are no “real” lights. You have to dress up in a costume to really fit in.
  5. No matter when your Christmas party is, there will be drinks. Unless it’s one of those conservative business that don’t want to be sued – no one works for them but out-of-towners.
  6. We have a Christmas parade, a “running of the Santas” and a Krewe of Kringle pub crawl. A pub crawl is when you go from bar to bar and drink their signature drink in each one – dress as Santa to fit in.
  7. You should probably wear something with a fleur de lis to fit in at any event.
  8. There are a few great places to see the lights, especially City Park, The Roosevelt hotel and Fulton Street.
    Christmas New Orleans style
  9. We can turn a King Cake into anything – even a Candy Cane
  10. One of the best New Orleans local Christmas songs is called 12 Yats of Christmas

Now it’s your turn…Do whatever you want!!!
