KVKI listeners got a hankering for some funny Cajun Christmas music so I thought I'd post some from YouTube.

Christmas memories in New Orleans from some who remember what it was like before Katrina. From the 1950's through the 1980's for many natives of New Orleans life was simple and the songs were about love in this great city on the Mississippi River.

Christmas was a magical time and Canal Street was the center of that magic. Stores like Goudchaux's and Maison Blanche decked out their windows with colorful displays. Mr. Bingle, the funny little snowman with the ice cream cone hat was on every child's mind. Christmas dinner was a true feast, with several generations of families in attendance.

There was something magical about Christmas in New Orleans. Whether it was the lighting displays in the park and later in the 1990's at the home of Al Copeland (Popeye's Chicken), the Christmas on the Bayou boat parade or the bonfires on the levee, the multicultural population made the Holiday celebration exceptional.
