Christmas

Family celebrating Christmas in New Orleans reading books by tree

The lights. The sights. The spirit. The foods and the aromas. Christmas in New Orleans has it all and New Orleans Mom is here to give Moms all the information they need to create the best holiday memories for their families. 

No matter the season, New Orleans Mom has a guide that can help Mothers celebrate with their families.  New Orleans Mom Ultimate Guide to Big Easy Christmas activities covers everything from the lights to the events to sitting on Santa’s lap

It can be fun to enjoy the cooler weather during the holiday season, and one of New Orleans Mom’s favorite Big Easy Christmas activities is to find and cut down your own Christmas tree. Another of our favorite ways to celebrate is by viewing the many beautiful Christmas lights displays in NOLA. The writers at New Orleans Mom keep up with all of the best Big Easy Christmas activities across our area, from Metairie to Uptown to Kenner to Westbank. 

Some of the most cherished memories of Christmas come from gift giving and our writers have plenty of ideas for how to get the perfect present for the tree. And even though the Holidays are a time of joy and celebration, we also understand it can be a time of stress, and our writers have advice on how to handle the pressures of the season

Christmas isn’t complete without the food and New Orleans Mom has all a busy Mom needs to know about how to lay out the perfect spread on the dinner table, along with a couple of cocktails too. Or if you’re eating out for Christmas in New Orleans, we’ve also got some ideas there. 

Before celebrating Christmas this year, check New Orleans Mom for all the events, tips, ideas, and Big Easy Christmas activities that every NOLA Mom needs to know.
