Southern Holiday Traditions


Mississippians are known the world over for our hospitality. That's especially true during the holidays, when we welcome family and friends into our homes.

This year, we ask you to share your holiday traditions. From special craft cocktails and generations-old recipes to table settings, special toasts and family rituals, we want to know what moments you recreate each holiday season, from Thanksgiving to Christmas through the New Year.

Share your undeniably unique Southern tradition and you could win Viking cookware along with Viking cutlery! 

To Enter:

All you have to do is snap a pic of your tradition, share it on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and use #VisitMSTraditions to be entered to win! You can then have your friends and family vote on your tradition. The photo with the most votes will be our winner!

Submissions and voting begin November 8, 2018, at 8 a.m. CST. Voting will officially end January 14, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. CST with a winner announced on January 15, 2019.
