It’s a bit of a blue Christmas in New Iberia.
Some people are complaining that the city’s Christmas lights are too subdued this year.
But the blue lights lining trees, store windows and other decorations on Main Street are a memorial to a home-town artist — George Rodrigue. His blue dog paintings became internationally famous.
Rodrigue died a year ago.
Phyllis Mata of the Magic on Main committee tells The Daily Iberian that the change from white lights is temporary.
