Morgan's Note

Christmas has always been a magical holiday for my family, and every year of my life (even when I was delayed due to snow in New Orleans) I’ve travelled to Dallas to celebrate with my parents in my childhood home. Though some things have changed – we no longer put out fried okra for the reindeer, my fiancé (now husband) has joined us, we moved our Christmas Day to the 26th so that Mike and I could throw a Reveillon – our core traditions have always remained. This year, our son’s first, offers the opportunity for a whole new set of traditions. Though our Reveillon has morphed into to a New Year’s party and my parents are coming to us, I think I’ll put out some fried okra – just in case.

If you’re looking for ways to add some shine to you and your holiday traditions, look no further than our guide “Sparkling Nights & Twinkling Lights” with local favorites for health and beauty, fashion, food and entertainment in sections on how to prepare, what to wear and where to go through the season and into your New Year.

Every December we’re honored to present St. Charles Avenue’s Activists of the Year. This year’s group has tirelessly given their time, efforts and energies to nonprofits across our city – and beyond! Learn more about Stephanie and Terrance Osborne, Roland and Mary von Kurnatowski and Linda and Tommy Westfeldt and why we’re proud honor them, starting on pg. 43.

Whether you celebrate a holiday this season or not, take some time to set aside your devices and concentrate on family because, blood or chosen, time spent with loved ones is never wasted.
