Mardi Gras (AKA Fat Tuesday) is the last day of the Carnival season and the day before Ash Wednesday. It is always 46 days before Easter. It officially starts on Twelfth Night, 12 days after Christmas. Many people view this day as their last chance to do everything that they aren’t supposed to be doing before Lent. As for me, it’s another day to celebrate living,warts and all. The Mardi Gras masks display the comedy and sadness that we all face in life, and celebrating in spite of it all.
I hope you get lots of beads (without having to flash anything) and all the doubloons you can stand!!
