Fat Tuesday

Today is Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, also known as Mardi Gras or Shrove Day. Basically it is a celebration day when we eat what we want before a long fasting period. It is also a day of fun, food, drinking, music and parades in New Orleans, the last day of the Mardi Gras Festivities.
My Fat Tuesday will be having a play group get together today where we will make some masks, have a parade, listen to music, throw some beads around(what's a Mardi Gras parade without beads) and have some King Cake cupcakes. Pictures to come this week.
