Fat Tuesday in Raintree.....

  • 1
It's the day before Lent begins in the Catholic religion. Many Catholics give up something for Lent (a particular favorite food; a particular habit, such as snacking or smoking) for the 40 days of Lent which precede Easter. Fat Tuesday is a day to revel in excess (perhaps) before the austerity of Lent. It's marked by many parades, particularly in New Orleans, which is known for the out-of-handedness of it's celebrations. Needless to say, there is not much out-of-handedness in this Raintree community where the average age is 70. :D
