    It used to be a day to eat up all the fat in your house and that why people eat malasadas (hole-less donuts), now it seems to be another Gay Holiday.

    It actually marks the beginning of Lent.  In my family it is a day of celebration and feasting before the 40 day fast for Lent up to and before Easter.  It's a great day and that is a good question.  smile Katie

    From what I saw in New Orleans, "Mardi Gras," or, Fat Tuesday, is simply an excuse for people to get drunk and act crazy in public.  I must say...I was very disappointed.
