Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday. It celebrates the time between Christmas and Lent. Fat Tuesday always falls on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, a fasting time that lasts for 46 days, Christians give up meat, treats, spicy dishes, and other types of food for Lent. That means that Fat Tuesday might be the last day to indulge a bit before this time of fasting.
