Katrina Ridge is the name given to the new neighborhood in Lakeside Mall’s Christmas Village this year. A hurricane ravaged stretch that resembles my own neignborhood (which weathered the storm the best of all the city).

“Blue Roof,” tarps cover damaged roofs while tiny refrigerators proudly display the same slogans seen throughout the city.

Google the phrase Katrina Ridge to get the full story. It has been taken down due to public outcry and now has been restored due to an even greater one. I, myself, love it. As a native New Orleanian satire runs in my veins (especially as a child of two old Carnival families). Right now we need to be able to laugh at the harsh realities around us.

Merry Xmas, Chaunukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, Solstice, Yule, and Secular Bank Holiday to all and to all a good night!!
