If you aren’t from the South, you probably are unaware of the month long celebration which is Mardi Gras! This is such a fun time full of merriment and community. I would definitely say this is one of my favorite Southern traditions. Mardi Gras brings together all types of people from every walk of life. There really is nothing better than going to a parade and being surrounded by people that are all celebrating the same event. For those of you that have not experienced such a thing, I really encourage you to come to the South one February and experience this great time!
