That’s right, it’s Carnival time down in New Orleans!
Mardi Gras season reefer’s to the events of the Carnival celebrations, beginning on or after Epiphany and ending on the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday,” referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lent season, which started on Ash Wednesday.
