‘Tis the season! The Christmas season is one of my favorite times of the year. I love everything from the music, to the decorations, to the time being spent with loved ones. There are a lot of Christmas-y things to do, as well as not-so-Christmas-y things to do.

From pictures with the famous, 7th Ward Chocolate Santa, to movies on the Mississippi, to a Maze feat. Frankie Beverly concert, there’s something for everyone. Take a look, pick an event or four, and have a blast! Be sure to check back for updates. Happy Holidays!
