Christmas 2009: Fun Links

Here's a great site if someone is tough to buy for...Try Gift Finder, a nifty online service that offers suggestions based on gender, age, interests, etc. Try it! It seems to work pretty good.

Hosting a party and want to offer something season-appropriate at the bar? has a healthy selection, including the "Mistletoe Martini" & "Fog Log Nog."

The Library of Congress' "Modern History: Christmas" page.

The History Channel's History of Christmas

Louisiana Links

Where y'at? How about spending Christmas in New Orleans, maybe?

Celebration in the Oaks is the big light show that fills New Orleans' City Park with Christmas wonder every year. And, of course, the neat little train. Great for families with young kids!

If you want a few days a bit further away (without going TOO far away), The Natchitoches Christmas Festival is something to think about. It gets bigger every year until it now draws in tourists from all over the mid-south.

Louisiana Greetings lets you send a Saints or LSU greeting card.

The Chabad-Lubavitch of Louisiana has some great information about Jewish Holidays.

Anyway, we hope you have a safe and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Terrebonne Parish Library System.
