By Valerie Evans:
I spent my childhood in Metairie, Louisiana, during the 1960s. I was the youngest of three daughters, enduring seven and five years age difference between me and my sisters. Cindy being the oldest got a room of her own, and Terry & I shared a room until Cindy went to college (Ole Miss). I got to move into her room at the ripe old age of 11!
We had an interesting mix of cultures on our street. A family from Mexico lived to the left of us, a family from France lived to the right of us, while Texans lived across the street. My best friends lived catty-corner, and their dad was from Honduras. Naturally, native New Orleanians supplied adhesion to the mix. I think my parents, my best friend’s mom and one other family were the only Mississippians in the neighborhood.
Christmases back in those days were fantastically magical.
