If you think this is Christian then you have no idea what a Christian is. It may have started out as a holy day but it has gone so far down into a pit that now it is insulting for anyone to call it Christian.

It is not a holy day in the Catholic tradition -- it is a day BEFORE the penetential season of Lent. The Gras (Fat) in Fat Tuesday comes from the practice of getting rid of all of the lard and butter in the home before Lent began..... Yes, it used to be a vegan season (and certain groups still do this... Orthodox Christians, I believe).

:\ Eh.. drunken idiocy and women with low self esteem stripping for beads don't appeal to me. Are there any mardi gras celebrations where people maintain their dignity? I wouldn't know cuz all I've seen and heard for decades now are not so good things.

What you're thinking of is the Mardi Gras in the French Quarter, which is not family friendly. It's different elsewhere.

Have you ever personally been to Mardi Gras festivities? Yes, there are some people who act inappropriately, but you would be surprised at the small percentage. For the most part, Mardi Gras truly is a family celebration in Louisiana. It's a shame really that the small percentage of people who are getting drunk and showing body parts are the ones Mardi Gras is known by. Thanks MTV and the media.

Made gumbo and King Cake and shared it with my best friends! I had one glass of wine, so we aren't drinkers at all! I love Mardi Gras masks and colors and use them in my decorating. I'll probably buy a bunch of real coins (thrown from the floats by the crewes) so my husband has some to give out when he dresses as Baron Semedi on Dia de Los Muertos. :)

Well, I know some people think Mardi Gras = alcohol and wild partying, but my rather tame idea of celebrating "Fat Tuesday" is to pig out, since the following day is Ash Wednesday and I'll be fasting. During the rest of Lent I'll be in pretty much sacrificial/repentance mode until Easter, at which time all the fasting and abstinence will turn to rejoicing, in keeping with the commemoration of Christ's Resurrection. Call me a Jesus Freak Catholic, but hey, that's my life.

My boss always brings in a king's cake and mardi gras beads, so I guess I celebrate in that way. (I work in a library, by the way - we're wild and crazy over there! ;) )

I've quit drinking and learned that anybody who thinks getting drunk at a party is fun is doing it wrong.
