celebrate Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras, which is French for “Fat Tuesday,” occurs each year on the day before Lent begins. But, regardless of whether you observe Lent, you and your sweetie can take advantage of Mardi Gras!

Turn the holiday into a super special date by going to a fancy costume ball. Or keep thing a little more low-key by throwing a string of beads around your neck and grabbing a slice of King’s cake. Either way, you’re sure to have a fun time!
