"A Custom from New Orleans"
Posted By : Elaine Livers

My parents began sending Parrot candy at Christmas to me and my siblings.  My family was living in New Orleans and my siblings elsewhere in the country.  This was in the 1960's.  As our children married we started sending Christmas candy to them.  When my mom was no longer able to do this, we had candy sent to her until she died.  One daughter has started this custom with her children as they left home.
