A Tour of Creole Mourning Customs

Last weekend, I was in Louisiana to do a panel and book signing at the Louisiana Book Festival. I decided to take the St. Joseph Creole Mourning tour during a little downtime I had. I learned so many fascinating facts about the Creole attitudes, customs, and superstitions re: death that I wrote an entire blog post about it for Chicks on the Case titled "Good Mourning."
