It's the most wonderful time of the year, until you realize you forgot something and the joy turns to sorrow. We asked Louisiana residents for Christmas reminders about what not to forget, likely because they've experienced what happens when they do.
It's Christmas time in South Louisiana. Lots of cooking, shopping, visiting with family and old friends, and of course Christmas music. Sure, "Frosty The Snowman" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" are just fine, but in Acadiana, we can do much better than just the standards. Here is a collection of Cajun Christmas songs to enjoy this holiday season.
With a mere five days left until Christmas, The Salvation Army has launched a heartfelt plea to the local community, urging for their immediate support to bridge the $150,000 gap in their 2023 Red Kettle Campaign. This critical fundraiser is the backbone of the organization, ensuring ongoing aid to individuals facing sudden crises or financial strains.
Youngsville on Ice, the exclusive outdoor holiday ice skating rink in Acadiana, has extended its hours just in time for the festive season. From December 20th to the 31st, the rink will offer expanded hours to ensure an unforgettable winter experience for locals and visitors alike.
Celebrate the magic of the holiday season in the picturesque town of Natchitoches, where festivities kick off with the enchanting Holiday Kids Fest on the Downtown Riverbank. Indulge in sweet moments at "Cookies with Santa," and witness the official start to Christmas with "Turn on the Holidays," featuring musical entertainment and a spectacular fireworks display over Cane River Lake.
We are all familiar with the classic 12 Days of Christmas song but chances are you haven't heard this version of the holiday classic. It highlights some of the best and worst stereotypes about New Orleans, and it's hilarious.
