LET THE GOOD TIMES WHEEK AND ROLL, PIGGIES! IT'S MARDI GRAS! 💜 💚💛
"Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!"
With a mask and some beads, pigs, you're all set for "Fat Tuesday" the culmination of the season of Carnival, as the last celebratory excess before the more somber period of abstinence during the season of Lent.<br><br> Mardi Gras is most famously celebrated in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Venice, Italy; New Orleans, United States; São Vicente, Cape Verde; Nice, France; Barranquilla, Colombia; Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago; Goa, India; and Quebec City, Canada.<br><br> In New Orleans, the tradition of flinging gold, purple, and green colored beads to revelers during the many parades sometimes leads to naughtiness by some parade watchers who try to entice the bead throwers by showing a bit of skin (or perhaps for piggies, a bit of underfur).<br><br> The traditional colors of Mardi Gras symbolize purple for justice, green for faith, and gold for power! #wheekwheek
