Why I Love New Orleans: Reason #32

Reason #32: Birthdays

Last year I made 12 dollars, 10 euros and 10 pounds on my birthday. This year I made just over $20.

That’s right – you can make a profit on your birthday in New Orleans. How do you ask?… Well, it is a New Orleans tradition that you pin a dollar to your shirt, and throughout the day/night other people will add to this cash corsage .

If you pin a dollar to your shirt, those who are familiar with the tradition will wish you a happy birthday, and maybe add some bills to your stash.

This is a fun alternative to wearing a birthday sash or crown, and a hell of a lot more profitable!!

Until next time…

Paix et Amour
