DID YOU KNOW? Mississippi Christmas fun facts

The Singing Christmas Tree,
live from Jackson!

• One of the most popular Christmas events in the Southeast happens in Jackson, MS where the Singing Christmas Tree draws thousands to Belhaven University to hear an all-female choir on a tiered stage perform popular holiday hymns and carols.

• For Mississippians on the Gulf Coast there's nothing like shrimp and grits to celebrate Christmas Eve. For Cajun Mississipians, it's heaping servings of gumbo that kick off the night before Christmas. The following week, it's black-eyed peas that are served on New Year's Eve to bring good luck for the coming year.

• Mississipians don't buy trees in tree lots, where shelf life is short for Christmas trees grown in the state. Instead, each year most families make a day of visiting Mississippi choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms where the most popular species include the Virginia Pine, Leyland Cypress, and Eastern Redcedar.
