Music Moves Me…Louisiana Christmas Day

Music Moves Me…Louisiana Christmas Day Video is as close as this nolagirlatheart will get to being home for Christmas.  This song is sung by Aaron Neville a native of New Orleans, Louisiana.  I thought the pictures chosen by LaLeroux captured the essence of a New Orleans Christmas; the St.Charles Streetcar, The Balconies, The Horse Drawn Carriage, The River Road Bonfires, The Alligator Santa Clause and Mr. Bingle the Maison Blanche department store icon and the St. Louis Cathedral.   It all reminds me of my beloved NOLA.

Joyeux Noel de Cajun!!!

  4. Love the song and the Christmas images of a town so beautiful and rich with an amazing heritage. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Wishing you love, peace, joy and good health.

  5. Growing up in western Canada, we had a lot of French/Cajun influence in our music – we danced similar dances (do all ppl know that Cajuns came from French Canada originally??).

    Best boss I ever had was from Lafayette, LA and he loved to play this song at Christmastime; thank you for taking me right back there!

    Laissez les bons temps rouler!!


  6. Among all the images…there were the bonfires…and many other things you have told us about. Thank you for sharing what moves you, nola girl. Your Cajun spirit is contagious.
