Mardi Gras Gifting and Decorating Guide
In South Louisiana, Mardi Gras is as much a holiday as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter! Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday,” the day before Ash Wednesday, but this celebration is more than just one day. It is a season of parades, parties, balls, king cakes and traditions.
Today marks "The Twelfth Night," also known as Epiphany, traditionally celebrated as the day the Wise Men visited Jesus after his birth. Until the 19th century, Epiphany was as big a celebration as Christmas Day! Today, it marks the end of the Christmas season and the official start of the Mardi Gras season.
Because Mardi Gras ushers in so many celebrations, we've compiled a gifting and decorating guide to assist you in welcoming the Carnival season. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
