An overdone tourist-trap of a holiday. Mardi Gras merchandise is sold all year round in N'awlans. Makes me sick.

Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday" Originally created in Mobile, Alabama but now made into amazing shit by New Orleans, Louisiana. Although Mardi Gras Day is the big day of celebration it is the days, or should we say nights, that are really celebrated. Random hookups, exposures of oneself, and complete and total memory loss and lack of judgement occur on these wondeful nights.
Only during Mardi Gras will you see a 12 year old smoking weed and a 10 year old drinking beer. BUt only in New Orleans are people actually use to it.

literally "fat Tuesday"; a festival day ending a period of celebration and excess; usually occurs mid to late February, sometimes early March. Immediately followed by Ash Wednesday and Lent. Traditional Mardi Gras celebrations are held in Mobile, AL and New Orleans, LA
I get arrested getting drunk on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras.

Mardi Gras is really french. it means "fat tuesday". teachers at my school were trying to tell us that it was a very christian holiday about having a celebration before giving stuff up for lent, but we all know its about getting wasted and flashing people for beads.

Translated litereally from French, "Fat Tuesday", this "holiday" has obscured origins and is now a marvolous excuse to march down the streets, to wear bright, often clashing, colors, to smash down the barriers of "heterosexuality" and "homosexuality" and to go crazy, drinking, streaking, and "playing" with whoever you want
From WLIIA: "I want yo uto do this scene like you're college girls going crazy at a Mardi Gras... action!"
