Good morning Acadiana. CJ and Jenn in the Morning were just talking on the air about how folks can sometimes be rude around the holidays, a time when you would think people would be nicer. Don't let those people ruin your day. Today is going to be a great day. Sunny early, clouds roll in later in the day, 70.

Today CJ and Jenn will have C'mon Drew t-shirts before 8:00 AM and Cher tickets at 9:20 AM.

Today is National Repeal Day, International Ninja Day, Sacher Torte Day and Bathtub Party Day.
