The Fel (pronounced “Fell”) is a nickname for the combined area of East Feliciana and West Feliciana parishes in Louisiana, commonly referred to as “the Felicianas”. The Fel derives from West Feliciana High School’s popular slang nickname “West Fel High”. The Fel is considered part of the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Area and is home to approximately 40,000 residents. While all other neighboring parishes of the capitol city have surged with population booms, East and West Feliciana have remained quiet rural areas. Many Baton Rouge residents own hunting camps or summer get away homes in The Fel’s rolling hills. The Fel has avoided criticism from Baton Rouge city dwellers over the years. While most outlying parishes are considered to be backwards and redneck, the Felicianas have maintained a southern elegance and sophisticated reputation with the people of the metropolis.

Some Louisianians grow up not knowing that other states in the US call parishes "counties."
He couldn't attend an Orleans parish public school with his friends because his parents moved to Jefferson parish.
Slang term for a New Orleans native. The term is specifically used to describe residents of Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Bernard parishes, and is exclusive to the area. For natives, the term is most generally used to identify members of the Westbank region of New Orleans including residents of: Algiers, Terrytown, Gretna, Harvey, Marrero, Westwego, Avondale, Lafitte, and Belle Chasse.
A Y'at can be identified by dialect, mannerisms, lifestyle, and/or appearance.
The term Y'at is derived from "Where y'at?", a common greeting in the New Orleans area.
Y'at can also appear as "y@" in new media and certain publications.
His thick Westbank accent and affinity for New Orleans culture led me to believe that he was a Y'at.
If the explanation of the "kapellekes" (or small "chapels") along the Flemish wayside does not give satisfaction, there is still the well known story of saint Martin, the former Roman soldier on his horse, who at the town gate of tours (in France), cut half of his mantle ("cappa") and gave it to a frozen beggar. The Roman soldier would later become the bishop of tours. Martinus already was declared a saint in the Vth century (he is the titular saint of a majority of churches and parishes in Belgium (probably more than 50%) and (the rest of) his "cappa" for a very long time was considered as a relic.
In times of war, the relic went to battle with the soldiers. The persons who had the task and honor to take care of this precious half of a mantle were called "cappelani" (or "chaplains" in English, "chaplains" in French and "kapelanen" in Dutch). They kept the relic in a tent called "capelle" throughout the centuries, the word "capelle" or "cappelle" was synonymous with small buildings where divine services were celebrated.
there is no doubt that the variant of "cappelle", in this case "capelleman" or "Cappelleman", meant the chaplain or supervisor of a chapel, or also subsheperd of sheperd of a subparish or parish. In French, we have then the word "chapelain", in English "chaplin" and in German "kaplan"
A retail store in Denham Springs, Louisiana that sells smoking accessories and adult novelties. It is the only store of it's kind in Livingston Parish. They also have much better prices on glass pipes than any similar store in the surrounding parishes.
