Mardi Gras 2017
Fat Tuesday is tomorrow, 2/28, but Mardi Gras has already begun in New Orleans, LA. Mardi Gras is more than a party, it is a celebration of the “fatted calf” before the season of Lent. It is a tradition passed down from medieval Europe. The colors of Mardi Gras have meaning also: Purple-Justice; Green-Faith; and Gold-Power.
