Mardi Gras

If you are celebrating then have a great Mardi Gras or 'Fat Tuesday'. Also known as Shrove Tuesday it is the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Lenten season. It's as good of an excuse for a party as any other and traditionally a day when you party heartily in preparation for the sacrifices of Lent. In the U.S. New Orleans has become the epicenter of the celebration but it originated in Mobile when it was the center of French activity. So anyway, Let the good times roll if you are so inclined.

'Laissez les bons temps rouler'
