Paul Simon – Take Me to the Mardi Gras
Fat Tuesday is this week, February 28! In the Christian setting, it’s a day for indulgence because Ash Wednesday signals the beginning of the Lenten season when the devout fast in preparation for Holy Week. Regardless of your belief system, if you are celebrating Mardi Gras in a carnival setting, please be safe! Have a designated driver, even if it’s a bus or a taxi.
And if you are partying it up in New Orleans, as a former resident, please pick up your own debris and throw it away. Nothing is more infuriating than seeing that beautiful city left as one big trash bin after tourists leave. -_-
