About Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras started a long, long time ago, and at different times in different places. Early Christians only performed baptisms on Easter Sunday. So people would fast and pray before being baptized, and that tradition became Lent. Mardi Gras Day is on Tuesday because it is the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.
