Reveillon Dinner

For those who are Christians, this is Christmas Eve. For the New Orleanian it is the Reveillon Dinner that one has been waiting for. It is the celebration of "the Awakening"...a meal after the Midnight Mass.

A nineteenth century Creole tradition that is still celebrated in New Orleans. Originally enjoyed after Midnight Mass at St. Louis Cathedral, the elaborate meals broke the religious fast that lasted throughout the day.

Stay blessed and may all of our families be safe to enjoy our love!!
