Today is Mardi Gras, also known as  Carnival or Carnivale or Shrove Tuesday, depending on where you are. People don colorful costumes and masks and parade in the streets. It’s basically when certain cities turn into a big party for a day. Some of the largest celebrations are in New Orleans, Rio de Janeiro, Trinidad & Tobago, and Venice.

If you don’t know, Mardi Gras is the day before Ash Wednesday (a Christian holiday) where people party and eat before they have to give up something for Lent. I don’t know all the details but you don’t have to be religious to be a part of it. I’m sure where I would choose to go to celebrate. Where would you? Comment below.
