Mardi Gras Carnival Art / February 19, 2019 / Chris Burris
You do not want to spoil the carnival by ordering food that is bland or tasteless. So be sure to check and taste before you place your order. The other important thing is you need to buy and stock gifts to be given to children and guests. Select the appropriate gifts and then wrap them up in decorative papers. The host needs to bear in mind to keep up the spirits during the carnival. It is also advisable to stock yourself up with some bright colors or body paint as this is a usual custom during mardi gras to paint others in all sorts of colors and patterns. Care should be taken to use skin friendly colors for this purpose.
I think that this might be a new thing for you that Mardi Gras is celebrated in so many places throughout the world. Let us jump to another fact that there are associations who organize Mardi Gras carnivals known as Krewes. Mardi Gras officially begins on the 12th day of Christmas. From the beginning of New Year till the time when Mardi Gras starts there are a lot of people who start celebrating Mardi Gras by throwing private parties and at the same time a lot of outdoor activities begin throughout New Orleans to embrace the upcoming grand celebrations. With all these facts I would also like to add that it would not be wrong to say that Mardi Gras celebrations are incomplete without Mardi Gras Beads Mardi Gras Masks and Mardi Gras Floats.
The parade continues from one end of the village to the other with most of the village inhabitants either looking from their windows or standing on the pavements and cheering on the flambeaux carriers. The whole thing reaches it s climax after about 45 minutes when the torches are thrown off the bridge and into the River Earn with the idea that with them all the village demons then float away and arrive at the next village. Across the Atlantic Ocean all the way to New Orleans at the Mardi Gras parade the highlight for many is also the Flambeaux Procession.
