New Orleans mardi gras celebrations


  • New Orleans celebrates Mardi gras with parades and other festivities starting early January – February.
  • But the big celebration is this coming Tuesday, February 13 – better know as Fat Tuesday.
  • Fat Tuesday comes from the medieval times when everyone ate all meats and eggs prior
    to the start of Lent – a period of abstaining from meat for 40 days prior to Easter Sunday.
  • So Fat Tuesday or Carnival festivities, was the celebration of life prior to the 40 day penitence period.
