Today is Mardi Gras, celebrated event in New Orleans, LA and by all who enjoy a party, worldwide.
History: New Orleans Mardi Gras. The first American Mardi Gras took place on March 3, 1699, when French explorers Pierre Le Moyne d’Iberville and Sieur de Bienville landed near present-day New Orleans, Louisiana. They held a small celebration and dubbed their landing spot Point du Mardi Gras.
Today I shall celebrate the purple, gold, and green holiday with my sparkly Tara and my friend Beth, who, native to NOLA, I met in Abu Dhabi, now lives in Dallas.
However you see fit, enjoy today!
