 Here is part the third featuring Cajun/Zydeco at Christmas.
I usually read the notes beneath the YouTube videos and they are often very interesting – an albino alligator called Nicolette pulling Papa Noel’s boat? Well why not, it’s no more fanciful than than a reindeer with a bright red nose!!
“The Christmas season is doubly blessed in Acadiana. The Cajun population of south Louisiana is predominantly Catholic and the birth of Christ is a sacred reason for them to celebrate. Also, Cajuns as a rule simply love to socialize, so their Christmas holidays often abound with visits, parties, parades, food, spirited drinks, gifts, decorated homes, and community festival of light celebrations.

Around the world Santa Claus has many names; but in the deep, swampy bayous of Louisiana, he’s known as Papa Noël. In such a hot and humid place, there can be no sleds or reindeer, so Papa Noël rides the water ways in a boat that’s pulled by eight alligators, with a snowy white one named Nicollette in the lead.”
