Even though Halloween and Thanksgiving is looming, I wanted to share a different theme that is close to my heart- even though it won’t come around until March 🙂
I live in Louisiana’s capital city of Baton Rouge, but I grew up in the heart of Cajun country.
My little hometown is also known as the Cajun Music Capital of the World, but what we’re most known for is our Mardi Gras custom, Le Courir de Mardi Gras, or what most people call “chasing chickens.”
and it’s unique culture.
