It’s Fat Tuesday!

It’s Fat Tuesday!

Fat Tuesday, refers to events of the Carnival celebration, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany (Three Kings Day) and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”, reflecting the practice of the last night of eating rich, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. – Wikipedia

In New Orleans (or N’ahlins) it becomes a huge celebration with drink and food and partying…. and winning beads. Can’t remember how one does that though…. 😉
