It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! In New Orleans, that’s not a phrase we take lightly. Like any other holiday, folks in this city go all out to express their joy during this magical season. Streetcar lines and restaurants sparkle with lights, and wreaths adorn seemingly every pole in town. But the decorations don’t stop there. You’ve got some decorating to do of your own!
You don’t have to be Clark Griswold and trek to the forest to get your Christmas tree this year (unless you want to).
