Mardi Gras Has A Christian History?
Mardi Gras is best known as a raucous event that takes place in New Orleans, LA and other areas around the world in January and February. Fat Tuesday, the final day of Mardi Gras, can occur in March depending on the calendar year and how it corresponds to the Christian liturgical calendar. While Mardi Gras may be legendary for scantily clad costumes, delicious food, overflowing spirits, and many acts of debauchery. Many people — particularly non-Christians — may not know what the celebration is truly all about. #MardiGras #FatTuesday #ShroveTuesday
