Oh the weather outside is frightful

But the fire is so delightful

And since we’ve no place to go

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Hopefully that’s enough snow to put you in the Christmas spirit, because our 80-degree days are unlikely to do the trick.

But we are used to that in these parts, and the Miss-Lou knows how to drum up a little holiday spirit without the cold flakes.

So pull up a steamy cup of hot chocolate with whip cream on top and let’s review some of the good holiday headlines of last week.

4Hundreds of Natchezians — and neighbors from nearby towns — got in the spirit Saturday night with the city’s first recent night parade. Floats, more than we could count, drove up Main Street blaring Christmas tunes and lighting their own way with colorful lights.

4 Some of our friends from the Natchez Festival of Music were in town this weekend to perform in conjunction with The Natchez Council for Arts and Culture’s Christmas in New York. The council brought artists to town for a series of shows aimed at making bells jingle.

4The Natchez Little Theatre and the Middleton School of Dance opened their annual holiday shows this week, delighting children and adults alike. At the theater, “A Natchez Christmas Carol” is ongoing until Dec. 15.

So, snow or sweat, the Miss-Lou is ready for the holidays and we know there’s only more fun to come — whether the temperatures drop or not.
