Mardi Gras - also known as Fat Tuesday, Karnival, Shrove Tuesday, and Carnival is celebrated on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. This year it falls on February 16. A day to feast and confess before Lent begins.
Mysterious society balls open to wide-eyed Debutantes and masked men; beckoning them inside to candle-lit frivolities mixed with giddy pleasures.
Tomorrow we fast.
