Christmas Eve on the Levees
For over a hundred years on Christmas Eve, families and friends gather along the Mississippi River levees and light thousands of bonfires to guide St. Nick down to Bayou Country.
Amidst the fireworks, gumbo, and good cheer these 20 foot plus tall structures, which are constructed by family members over two months rekindle our links to the past and our connections to each other.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get my cousins to come down to the house in Lakeview and pick up some of my massive downed pines. Maybe next year... they'll probably still be there.
Merry Christmas everyone.
