Don't know what Mardi Gras and Carnival is all about? No problem, it's basically a huge world wide celebration that happens every year. It really a big deal in New Orleans and most Latin American and many European countries. It's also called "Fat Tuesday" because theoretically its the last day to indulge before Lent sets in for Christians. But, everyone to celebrate the mid-point of spring!
