A Little Bit About Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras or “Fat Tuesday”, the last day of the Carnival season, always falls the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. The date varies dependent upon when Easter occurs. This year the date is Tuesday February 21. The Carnival season, a weeklong celebration, is all about cramming in as many good things as can be eaten or done before a season of fasting or as it is put in south Louisiana, “Laissez les bons temps rouler” or “Let the good times roll!”
