Christmas in New Orleans Celebrated Year Round at Santa’s Quarters

Christmas in New Orleans

In May of 2013 we went on a trip to New Orleans. We had a great time and the city quickly became one of our favorites in the United States. We had to shorten the length of our visit due to an invitation to attend a travel blogging conference called BAcon. There is a lot to do in N.O. so I’m sure that we’ll get back there at some point, hopefully sooner than later.
While walking around the French Market District we came across a store that seemed to be just a bit out-of-place.

Although Kim, Lucas and I don’t celebrate Christmas, we still enjoy seeing decorations and the elaborate displays set up for the holiday season.

It isn’t hard to find great Christmas decorations close to home. In Brooklyn, three neighborhoods stand out for their elaborate displays- Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and Mill Basin. There is even a Brooklyn Christmas Lights Tour which costs $55 and runs every night from November 30 until December 31 at 7 PM. The tours are ran by A Slice of Brooklyn.

From there you could always head into Manhattan to see the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, check out the amazingly decorated store windows and visit holiday markets.

Uber Trees will be available in 10 cities: Continue reading Uber Is Delivering Christmas Trees

Fodor’s: The World’s Best Holiday Markets

I’ve heard about amazing holiday markets that pop up every year, about a month or so prior to Christmas all around the world. I haven’t made a trip to any of these markets and can’t say that I plan to. However, if I was in one of the cities known for it’s holiday market during the right time of year, I’d definitely stop by and check it out.

I recently came across a slideshow on Fodor’s featuring the World’s Best Holiday Markets. I checked out which places made the list and didn’t think much more about it until yesterday. While walking around a small town in Pennsylvania, I noticed signs for a market/ gift fair in an old church which made me think about the Fodor’s article.
