What are the traditions behind the Mardi Gras?
Mardi Gras, aka Fat Tuesday, is the time to revel in all things gluttonous. Once a holiday to use up food before fasting during the Lenten season, Mardi Gras has turned into a huge celebration, and the epicenter of the festivities in the U.S. is New Orleans. Music, parades, costumes, masks and above all, excitement, cover the city. Everywhere you look is purple, green or gold and beads fly from beautifully decorated floats. But, what are some of the traditions behind this renowned holiday?
