NEW ORLEANS -- Christmastime for Tyson and Ginny Graham means driving nearly 300 miles south of their Columbus, Miss., home to New Orleans for shopping, holiday concerts and the highlight of their trip -- indulging in a grand reveillon dinner.
Reveillons surrounding Christmas and New Year's Eve, however, were grand affairs, he said.
John Magill, a historian and curator at the Historic New Orleans Collection museum and research center in the French Quarter, said reveillon is French for "awakening" and was a term used by early Creoles to describe a meal that followed a celebratory event.
