Traditionally, Mardi Gras (which is actually French for "Fat Tuesday"), refers to the day before Ash Wednesday. It's a time when people celebrate by indulging in everything they'll be giving up for the season of Lent, leading up to Easter. Depending on where you live, Mardi Gras celebrations can extend for months. For example, in Mobile, Alabama, the festivities kick in during the month of November. There are countless social events and parades to attend, and the party continues up until Ash Wednesday. In other parts of the country, Mardi Gras is a three-day celebration leading up to Lent.
