There’s no place like New Orleans for the holidays

More than 100 festivities are planned during the month of December in celebration of Hanukkah and Christmas.    In fact, Christmas New Orleans Style, is the month-long event, is a celebration of uniquely New Orleans holiday activities taking place throughout December.  So while we celebrate for a couple of days at home with friends or family, New Orleans is enjoying 31 days of holiday fun!

One of my personal favorite parts: Miracle on Fulton Street

“Miracle on Fulton Street,”  is a holiday attraction in the heart of downtown New Orleans, that will bring the magic of the season alive for locals and visitors of all ages. This year, “Miracle on Fulton Street” is sure to enchant guests with two winter wonderland tunnels, complete with Santa and his reindeer, a giant gingerbread house, snow, strolling costumed characters, top local performers and holiday-themed dining.

Yup that’s right. SNOW! There are 8 14-foot wrought iron arches holding up a canopy of Christmas lights, from which fake snow falls daily!!!

Even better, while we have Santa, New Orleans has Papa Noel. Now, technically he’s one in the same but this guy is a little rough around the edges and seems much more fun fitting right in with the Style of New Orleans.  Check him out in the video below.

So, New Orleans is so cool during the holidays the Home and Garden Channel named New Orleans one of the Top 10 Christmas Towns. Here is the video clip:

Well, thats all for now.  Enjoy the Holidays!
