Rod - How long does the Mardi Gras "season" last? I am thinking three weeks. And when is the final day/ I think the final day is right before the beginning of Lent. And -- I think Lent is the 6 weeks before Easter?
There is celebrating all during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, isn't there?
And - what about King Cake? Is that eaten at every party? Or does each family give one "big" party? How does it work?
