Looking Back: “Ole Time Christmas”

In this story, a young Janelle Chanona jogged the memories of some gracious ladies who invited News Five into their homes. Not just in the city, but “up country” in Burrell Boom and Crooked Tree. In other words, she went to the heart of Creole culture to find the Spirit of Christmas past.
