Mardi Gras...Fat Tuesday! Awesome. Here on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, we're half way between New Orleans and Mobile Alabama. Since right after Christmas (to some it starts at Twelfth Night) we've been immersed in everything Carnival. Every town worth it's salt has a parade (or two) and a Ball. Today (Monday) is Lundy Gras. Big Parades today and tomorrow. No school for the children!
Ever wonder about the history of the official Mardi Gras colors?. Rex selected the official Mardi Gras colors in 1872. The 1892 Rex Parade theme Symbolism of Colors gave meaning to the colors.
