11 Unwritten Rules Every Louisianian Lives By ‘Til Death
There are some things that Louisianians just do without thinking, and it’s become the norm for us. When you live in such a unique state for long enough, you’re bound to pick up on a few of these unwritten rules we Louisianians live by.
1. Mondays are for red beans and rice.
And Sunday nights are for soaking said red beans.
2. We hold the door for people.
It’s just how we were raised.
3. Dancing in the street is encouraged.
When you come across a talented band playing on the street, it’s pretty much expected.
4. You’ll need a good bug spray in the summer.
Those skeeters will eat you alive.
5. Everyone has at least one Fleur-de-lis in their home.
Maybe it’s a tiny decoration, maybe it’s a focal piece displayed on your wall, but everyone’s got at least one.
6. Predictably unpredictable best describes the weather.
That one cold front that happened in early September? Just false hopes of an early fall. And it could easily be 88 degrees in December.
7. Saturdays are for football.
And Sundays… So basically the entire weekend during football season.
8. Everything is better with a little Cajun seasoning.
Pick your favorite and sprinkle away.
9. A po’boy is judged by how many napkins you use.
And best ordered "dressed".
10. You measure distance by time.
Oh you know, just go up the road for about 5 or 10 minutes then turn left.
11. There's nothing prettier than a sunset over the bayou.
Our bayous, swamps, lakes, and rivers are simply mesmerizing.
