Happy Mardi Gras!!

Just the name Mardi Gras conjures up images of drunken, bead-wearing revelers dancing through the streets of New Orleans. But how, and when, did this huge mid-winter party get started? Here’s a look at the history of Mardi Gras throughout the ages and across the nations.

  • The first Mardi Gras parade was staged in the United States 1837
  • Mardi Gras means “Fat Tuesday” and of course is celebrated on that day of the week, the day before Ash Wednesday.  The date can fall between February 3 and March 9 depending on the Lunar calendar, used by the Catholic Church to determine the date of Easter. Mardi Gras is always 47 days before Easter Sunday.
  • The official colors for Mardi Gras are purple, green, and gold.
    • Purple represents justice
    • Green stands for faith
    • Gold stands for power

An oval cake honoring the three kings is decorated in purple, green and gold colors, representing justice, faith and power, respectively. A small plastic baby, symbolizing the Baby Jesus, is baked into each cake. Whoever gets the piece with the baby not only will have good luck that year, but will also be responsible for bringing the King Cake to next year’s party!

Let Party Idea {Pros} inspire you to throw the most festive Mardi Gras Party outside of New Orleans!
