Many of you may know that Mardi Gras is the day before Ash Wednesday, which marks the start of Christian Lent season leading up to Easter. During Lent, many observers fast, and the name Fat Tuesday refers to the last day of eating richer foods before the leaner days of Lent begin. Mardi Gras coincides with the culmination of the Carnival season, which is recognized around the world.
In the spirit of celebrating Mardi Gras wherever you are, here is some original artwork in the traditional Mardi Gras color, purple, green and gold. The 1892 Rex Parade theme Symbolism of Colors gave meaning to the colors. Purple is Justice. Green is Faith, and Gold is Power.
🎉 Happy Mardi Gras! 🎉
