The words Mardi Gras come from the French for Fat Tuesday which refers to the day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. This day is a celebration before the Lent season. The last chance to eat and drink well before giving it up for religious reasons.
Mardi Gras is also known as Shrove Tuesday and Carnival. No matter how you call it, it is a celebration held just before the beginning of the Christian Liturgical Season of Lent.
Although there are Mardi Gras celebrations all over the world there are three cities who stand out from the crowd. New Orleans, where, for US citizens, Mardi Gras happens. Rio de Janeiro has the most outrageous Carnival, and Venice where the celebration dates back to pagan times.
New Orleans isn't the only town in Louisiana to celebrate. Metairie has a high time of the season and celebrates witih parades and parties.
