It’s Fat Tuesday Today – Feb. 21

February 21st, 2012 by Hank

Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday, the last day before Ash Wednesday. During Mardi Gras everyone eats, and eats, and eats, and makes merry. New Orleans is famous for its Mardi Gras parades and celebrations, but did you know about Mobile, Alabama? There Mardi Gras-associated social events begin in November, followed by mystic society balls on Thanksgiving, then New Year’s Eve, followed by parades and balls in January and February, celebrating up to midnight before Ash Wednesday.

Washington’s Birthday in February gets much less attention, except for government employees, banks and a few companies that deem to call it a holiday.
