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.

February is Here!

While everyone knows that Valentine’s Day is in February, here are a few more holidays and significant events that are celebrated during the month of February:

Chinese New Year, National Freedom Day, Groundhog Day, President’s Day, Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, Black History Month, American Heart Month, Chocolate Lover’s Month, National Bird Feeding Month, and National Dental Month.

Sounds like a lot of great opportunities to travel to your favorite destination and celebrate!
