“Mardi Gras is the love of life. It is the harmonic convergence of our food, our music, our creativity, our eccentricity, our neighborhoods, and our joy of living. All at once.” (Chris Rose, 2017) Mardi Gras is a very popular holiday in France, and the only place in America that really celebrates Mardi Gras is New Orleans.

As New Orleans has been owned by France for 44 years now, they’ve been influenced by the French culture. New Orleans as a whole has adapted many things from the French, but the most important thing to them is Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras is a common holiday that started thousands of years ago to celebrate the last day of eating unhealthy foods. 

Since Mardi Gras is coming up, we need to know how to celebrate this holiday. To start, the main colors are purple, which represents justice, green, for faith, and gold, to represent power. Everything is surrounded by these three colors. Also, these parties are best when decorated with Mardi Gras themed candy, balloons, crafts, masks, hats, tiaras, beads and decorations in green, gold and purple! Another key thing to know about Mardi Gras parties is to dress with masks and wear outfits that have the three main colors on them. Due to the fact that you’ll probably be walking around a lot, you should dress comfortably. The Mardi Gras parade will be March 5, 2019, so be prepared!
