Down here on the Gulf Coast up thru the Mississippi River, we all celebrate Mardi Gras.
Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday" or "Shrove Tuesday". It is the last day of feasting before Lent and this year it falls on Tuesday, February 24 th.
The "Season" is typically celebrated from Epiphany thru Ash Wednesday with Colorful Parades, Floats, Beads, Trinkets, King Cakes, Masks, Balls, and Moon Pies! Krewes plan these events all year long with fund raisers etc.
You may not be able to come to New Orleans or Mobile so I have created this beautiful Wreath to celebrate Mardi Gras no matter where you may live. You can find it on my website @ www.inklingsdesigns.com.
