About Mardi Gras
Mardi Gras is a traditional holiday celebrated movable calendar year by the “Frence Guiana” people. This celebration usually celebrated in February. Mardi Gras is a traditional festival celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday and the final day of Carnival, the three-day period preceding the beginning of Lent. This festival holiday is celebrated in many countries, albeit under different names and for varying durations, with carnivals, masquerade balls, and parades of costumed merrymakers. “Mardi Gras Day” is also called as “Fat Tuesday”, it got the name from the French term "Mardi Gras" (literally "Fat Tuesday"), and the term has come to mean the whole period of activity related to those events, beyond just the single day. The terms "Mardi Gras" (mär`dē grä) and "Mardi Gras season" in English. Historians tell us that the ancient Romans probably kicked off the Mardi Gras celebrations. Their mid-February festival known as Lupercalia honored the god Lupercus, alternately known as the god of fertility and the god of agriculture and pastoral shepherds.
