Mardi Gras is a time a celebration that starts with Carnival and extends through the start of Lent. The actual day of Mardi Gras, which means Fat Tuesday, is the day before Ash Wednesday. Since Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, Mardi Gras is considered the last day of revelry and debauchery before the start of Lent, a time of sacrifice and reflection.
The traditional colors of Mardi Gras are green, purple and gold which represent faith, justice and power, respectively. Mardi Gras costumes are an important part of Mardi Gras celebration. Wearing costumes in the Mardi Gras colors and taking part in Mardi Gras parades and masquerades are loads of fun and primarily meant for adults.
The primary costumes for Mardi Gras are the Mardi Gras King and Queen. There are versions of the Mardi Gras Queen costume that are sophisticated and some that are quite risqué. The Mardi Gras King costume ranges from regal to comical. And since it is a time of revelry, the Mardi Gras Jester costume suits the holiday perfectly.
