Canal Street and Mr. Bingle, the decorated Centanni Home, bonfires along the Mississippi River levees and a semi-tropical city under a rare blanket of snow – all part of Christmas in New Orleans.
While the celebrations of Christmas is universal, local traditions helped set an already unique town apart from other American cities.
Included in the documentary are rare photos and footage. Also featured are interviews with Irma Thomas, Moon Landrieu, Anne Rice and Deacon John Moore.
Christmas in New Orleans is hosted and produced by Peggy Scott Laborde.
