It's been a tough year, and we could all use some good news to kick off our holiday season. NOLA.com has brought a smile to folks all over the world with their video of little Boone boogieing with some amazingly talented street performers in Jackson Square. If this doesn't tell everyone what we're all about here in Louisiana, then I don't know what does.

Merry Christmas to you, Boone, and to everyone who is smiling at his awesome performance on the streets of the French Quarter. Watch below.
