A favorite Christmas memory is browsing in the Carmelite Monastery Gift Shop, Jackson, MS. The gift shop is open year round; however, between Thanksgiving and Christmas the shop is whirl wind of activity. This is one of the most beautiful shops I can recall being in.
Should you be in Jackson, MS make the Carmelite Monastery a must see. The nuns bake fabulous Rum Cakes. Grab a few as soon as you get to the kitchen area. The cakes will be long gone if you don't.
