The holidays in New Orleans are as diverse as the people who live there.

New Orleans had a large Catholic community in its early days. Many of the holiday traditions you find today in New Orleans were initiated by the Catholics centuries ago. For example, Réveillon, generally translated as “awakening,” is a Christmas Eve dinner dating back to the 1800s. Families, famished after fasting on Christmas Eve, would return from midnight service to indulge in a decadent meal lasting until dawn. Traditional dishes would include extravagant items such as daube glacé, chicken and oyster gumbo pies, turtle soup, souffles, grillades, candied fruits, fortified wines, and coffee. Réveillon is still celebrated in the French Quarter at local restaurants.

On the levee of the Mississippi River, bonfires illuminate the Christmas Eve sky. Although they were originally modest fires, today the building of these bonfires is very competitive with teams organizing themselves to build the biggest, most unique fires in different shapes and sizes. Once used as a way to light the way to church for midnight service, the youth of today prefer to believe the bonfires light the way for Santa Claus (known locally as Papa Noel) to find his way to the houses of good little boys and girls.

And speaking of Santa Claus’ Cajun counterpart, Papa Noel has a few distinct and joyful differences. His preferred mode of transportation when visiting children in the bayou is not a sleigh pulled by reindeer, but a pirogue (a long narrow canoe common in the bayou) pulled by a team of eight gators. Much like Santa  however , he calls them each by name, "Ha, Gaston! Ha, Tiboy! Ha, Pierre an' Alcee'! Gee, Ninette! Gee, Suzette! Celeste an' Renee'!

Joyeux Noël
