St. Patrick's Day in Cajun Country
By: Tug Crozat
From: MARDI GRAS MURDER
Series: Cajun Country Mysteries
Author: Ellen Byron
Hey y’all, Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Tug Crozat here, proprietor of Crozat Plantation Bed and Breakfast on Louisiana’s famed River Road. Here in my hometown of Pelican, Mardi Gras is probably the biggest holiday we got goin’. Our store shelves tend to look a lot more like this…
But we never miss a chance to decorate for the holidays, so you best believe there’s green streamers and four-leaf clovers all over town and when you open the door to any of our fine eating establishments, you’ll be greeted by the sound of fine Irish music. After all, green is one of our Mardi Gras colors – purple for justice, gold for power, and green for faith.
And let’s not forget the color of our local mascot, seen here trying to snack on author Ellen Byron.
Anyway, y’all, have a tres bon St. Patty’s Day!
Readers, do you have any fun plans to celebrate the holiday today?
