Celebration of French Festival Mardi Gras (on Tuesday, 28th February 2017 at Amritsar.)



Celebration of French Festival Mardi Gras (on Tuesday, 28th February 2017 at Amritsar.)

Mardi Gras was celebrated in Roman Catholic France centuries before the New World was discovered. The riotous parades and parties in New Orleans got their start as imports by French explorers who introduced a favorite annual custom to the raw social fabric of the colonial Gulf region. So, the French had it first and they named it well. Mardi Gras is the last day Christians could eat des mets gras (fatty foods) before spending 40 days of prayer and meat abstinence, until Easter. This day announced the beginning of Carême (Lent). It marks in a climactic fashion the end of la semaine des sept jours gras (week of seven fat days fat), once called jours charnels (carnal days). This period precedes le mercredi des Cendres (Ash Wednesday).

Mardi Gras at Large

Today, the happy festival is celebrated in all sorts of wonderful ways all around the globe.

  • Carnaval in Brazil is a wanton week of parade floats, ornate costumes, street parties and feasting that fuses French, Portuguese, African and Brazilian culture to rock Rio in a frenzied celebration. Rio revels feature samba school floats, a Carnival King, dance competitions and neighborhood street bands from the poorer urban favelas.
