Oh how I wish I was in New Orleans right now. Now would be the perfect time to go because it’s Mardi Gras! Mardi Gras is a HUGE holiday in New Orleans, and is celebrated during the two weeks prior to February 9th, which is Fat Tuesday, the day before the start of the Lenten season.
I have wanted to go since I was in high school. Back then I had visions of wandering down Bourbon Street, with the crowds of people, following the parades, and dancing in the streets. I planned on staying up all night to greet the dawn with the thousands of other party goers.
