New Orleans Santa – Photo of the Day

Santa Makes an Appearance at Jackson Square

Santa Makes an Appearance at Jackson Square

Look! It’s Santa! Spotted in Jackson Square in New Orleans! There might not be snow on the ground and those aren’t reindeer pulling those carriages, either, but this Santa doesn’t seem to mind. The spirit of Christmas is alive and well in the French Quarter.

Whether it’s a Cajun Christmas or a traditional Louisiana formal feast, you can be sure New Orleans will out on her very best show for her locals and visitors alike. This town is one of our very favorite places in the world to visit – and to share with you!

The great Louis Armstrong described Christmas in New Orleans best as he wrote…

Magnolia trees
At night
Sparkling bright
Fields of cotton
Look Wintery white
When it’s
Christmas time
In New Orleans

A barefoot choir
In prayer
Fills the air
Mississippi folks
Are gathering there
When it’s
Christmas time
In New Orleans

You’ll see
A dixieland Santa Claus
Leading the band
To a good old Creole beat
And golly what a spirit
You can only hear it
Down on Basin Street
Your cares will disappear
When you hear
Hallelujah
St. Nicholas is here
When it’s Christmas time
In New Orleans

Oh, yeah, baby

You’ll see
A dixieland Santa Claus
Leading the band
To a good old Creole beat
And golly what a spirit
You can only hear it
Down on Basin Street
Your cares will disappear
When you hear
Hallelujah
Old St. Nicholas is here
When it’s Christmas time
In New Orleans

When it’s
Christmas time in
In New Orleans

Whether it’s to a visit to see Santa in December in Jackson Square or a healthy dose of good music and fun during Jazz Fest, the city of New Orleans always serves up a wonderful time!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS YA’LL!!
