Eat lots of food, sing and dance in the streets, wear our Mardi Gras beads.
Did you bake a cake with a baby inside?
No, not a real baby. A tiny plastic one and whomever gets that piece of cake with the baby in it ... I think they get a prize or the cake or something. I've never even had Mardi Gras cake!
But, it sound like fun.
Did you know that Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday?
It's the last night that you supposedly can eat all the fatty food you wish before you fast for Lent.
I don't fast for Lent so that doesn't work for me.
I did have a huge juicy Whopper and Fries yesterday for lunch.
Does that count?
Here's a wee bit of history.
I'm from Alabama originally and I knew that Mobile has a Mardi Gras celebration and was the first to celebrate Mardi Gras.
New Orleans is the place you think of, though, isn't it?
How about that!
