Today is Fat Tuesday - Mardi Gras. There's a Mardi Gras parade today in my little town, but I think I'm going to stay home and enjoy my day off. Mardi Gras surely wasn't a paid holiday in the other LA!
Mardi Gras is the last day of feasting and celebration before the clock strikes midnight and Lent begins. I suspect some of those folks in New Orleans and at other celebrations around the state will need those 40 days to sober up!
Other than a purple, green and gold wreath on the front door, I didn't decorate at all. I guess next year I should do that. And make a Mardi Gras quilt. This picture caught my eye this morning. It looks like it would be simple enough to make, or even just squares in the three colors of the day. We'll see what I can come up with for next year....
Wishing everyone a happy day. As we say down here ... laissez les bon temps rouller!
