Happy holidays, y'all! Maggie Crozat here from Crozat Plantation B&B, closing out Killer Characters' Season's Readings month of giveaways.
We LOVE the holiday season here in Cajun Country, when the most exciting thing happens on the old River Road. We, along with our neighbors, build these giant bonfires on the levee that we light on Christmas Eve, supposedly to guide Papa Noel's way to all the Cajun children. It takes us about a month to build one. Some are shaped like teepees...
But some people build fancy shapes...
If you want to know more about all that goes with this great tradition, my author built a whole book around it: A Cajun Christmas Killing.Thinking of going? Click here for some helpful info.
