I’ll admit that I thought that Christmas parades were something that happened in other places. We have Mardi Gras parades–not Christmas, right? WRONG. In fact, Tangipahoa parish alone has five. FIVE. That’s a whole lotta Christmas. So if you decide that you want to catch one of these moving holiday celebrations, here’s a list of them happening in our area.
