What is Mardi Gras? 

  • Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday also known as Shrove Tuesday 
  • Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday. 
  • Ash Wednesday is a Christian Holy Day of prayer and fasting which begins the season of Lent.  It takes place 46 days prior to Easter. 
  • Lent is a time of reflection and preparation for Christians prior to Easter. Lent lasts 40 days just as Jesus was tempted by Satan for 40 days. During Lent many Christians abstain from something in their life which is generally important to them such as desserts or alcohol. The abstention can be most anything these days including internet usage or social media. The idea is to fast from something you wouldn’t normally give up.
  • Mardi Gras is a big celebration prior to the beginning of Lent. Lots of food is associated with Mardi Gras such as the King Cake.

  1. Thanks for the party, Shirley. Hope you have a great week. It’s feeling very much like spring time here in Charleston. I’m ready to start sprucing up the yard, but we’ll probably have a few more winter like days so I’m holding off just a little.

  2. Thank you so much for hosting again this week. You always do so much for bloggers! Have a relaxing week! I am off to see some posts. Looks like a lot of inspiration tonight.

We enjoying hearing from you!
