The first picture is of a shotgun house, typical of New Orleans architecture. Shotgun houses consist of three to five rooms in a row with no hallways and have a narrow, rectangular structure. The name, "shotgun house", comes from the saying that one could fire a shotgun through the front door and have pellets leave the house through the back door. They usually have a small front porch. This one is crammed with Christmas decorations. Notice the Santa holding a "wHO Dat" sign....
A house with a larger porch near the French Quarter.
Some pictures from caroling in Jackson Square. That's St. Louis Cathedral in the background.
A few photos from the "Christmas in the Oaks" celebration in New Orleans' City Park.
And, of course, the iconic French Quarter picture decked out for Christmas.
