March 4, 2014 – Mardi Gras – A Short Lesson

I was quite old when I first understood what Mardi Gras was all about.  It was quite a while before I ever made the connection between Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday!  I guess what I’m saying is … for a long time I was NOT in my right mind!

Ash Wednesday starts the season of Lent for much of the Christian World… a time for renewed focus on scripture, acts of charity, and fasting from things we enjoy.  In the days before refrigeration, that meant you either eat what is in your pantry or let it go bad… so Tuesday is a day to eat all the good stuff you will be missing for the next 46 days.  In some quarters this has turned into quite the party…

 I don’t think the intention was to start Lent with a hangover, but today, you can Eat Drink & be Merry for tomorrow you may Diet!
