Happy Mardi Gras!
Yes, today is Mardi Gras, also known as Fat Tuesday, the day before Lent – and it’s my favorite holiday!
Mardi Gras is all about partying & eating, and I think of it the same way – a day to just have fun. Have you ever had a paczki? If not, find one, TODAY! They’re donuts times three, and they’re wonderful.
But really, the message today is, just have fun. Be a little more carefree, look at life and say, “This is fun.” Of course, you should look at every day like it’s an adventure, but this is a special day. It’s a way to remember that life is about fun, enjoying yourself, and getting out there!
Oh, and here’s some more info on Mardi Gras. When we were in NOLA (New Orleans, LA) a few years ago, we had a great time at Mardi Gras World, the museum of Mardi Gras. We learned a lot and got to see some of the really cool parade floats and other accoutrements of the Mardi Gras parades!
