Title: Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras
  • Et Carnaval

What does Mardi Gras mean?
Tuesday
Mardi
Gras
Fat
So the meaning is  Fat Tuesday  ! Indeed, Mardi
Gras is the French for   Shrove Tuesday  . It
has the same meaning, and the same religious
origins. Its always on the Tuesday preceding
Ash Wednesday, which is the start of Lent (
Carême in French ). So Christians were not
supposed to eat any meat and eggs during the 40
days of Lent, ending on Easter. Thats why on
Shrove Tuesday, we eat a lot of really good ( and
fat ! ) food like crêpes, cakes, pancakes
because we need to be good during Lent.

And what about  Carnaval ?
  •  Carnaval  comes from the Italian word  carne
    vale  meaning goodbye to the flesh, so this
    is related to Mardi Gras.
  • Thats why we celebrate both on the same day in
    France. We dress up in costumes, put make up on,
    and eat lots of nice food.
