Top Neighborhoods to Live in If You Love Christmas

Jackson Hole, WY

Jackson Hole, Wyoming definitely has the perfect climate to host incredible Christmas celebrations. Although most people come to town for the winter sports that are on offer, lots of people gather every night after dark to celebrate the season together. Business owners in the town square work hard to attract customers, and the displays in the central area of town are always remarkable.

Probably the most spectacular of all are the four massive arches made of antlers that are scattered throughout the town. Every year, these get adorned with twinkling lights in an unforgettable Christmas display.

New Orleans, LA

The Cajun and Creole traditions of Christmas are on full display every year in New Orleans, Louisiana. Many families head out to the banks of the Mississippi River to light bonfires, which are intended to guide Papa Noel, the Louisiana version of Santa Claus who delivers presents to children using his boat pulled by eight alligators. City Park is always lit up, and although they don’t have many evergreens in New Orleans, the city decorates the ancient oaks, which makes the whole park feel like an enchanted forest.

If you’re in town over Christmas, make sure to secure an invite to a Reveillon feast, which is enjoyed after midnight Mass.
