To the delight of thousands watching, the larger-than-life party parade packed streets as revellers in outrageous feathered costumes and heavily painted faces weaved their way through the French Quarter. Mardi Gras had a chilly start on "Fat Tuesday", which marked the final day of the season. The iconic parade put on an eye-catching show as some revellers dressed up as "blind referees" poking fun at the NFL. Everyone's filled with love. Everyone gets along.
Hello Everyone. Mardi Gras is always a good theme to post pics to. For those who don't know how it works basically everyone parties and drinks whether it's day or night. Then they play the bead game. Men try to get or buy as many as they can and women have to 'earn' them from the guys by flashing thier tits or ass or anything else the guys request.
French for the holiday known as Fat Tuesday , Mardi Gras is that special day for Christians to get all that "naughty" behavior out of their system before they head to church the very next day — likely hungover as hell — to mark Lent with Ash Wednesday. For those who observe Lent, Mardi Gras is a healthy way to exorcise to the devil inside. And one of the most infamous devilish traditions? Flashing for beads on Bourbon Street. But when — and how exactly — did that supposed tradition begin?
What comes to your mind when you think of Mardi Gras? For others, it's wild parties, women flashing their boobs and the craziness that is Bourbon Street. Mardi Gras is a historical celebration that dates back thousands of years , and was intended to be a celebration on the eve of Lent. The hedonism that we see pictured in the media is completely separate from the real purpose of the celebration.
