Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) is the day before Ash Wednesday. Also known as Carnival, the Mardi Gras (or Carnival) season runs from Ephiphany to Shrove Tuesday - the day before As…h Wednesday. The season features various celebrations of excess - with parties, parades and special foods leading up to the Lenten season of fasting and preparation for Easter. Easter is a movable feast, so the date changes from year to year. But Mardi Gras is always 46 days before Easter. Mardi Gras will be February 22nd in 2012.
That depends... If you mean Mardi Gras as a party holiday and not a day of 'religious' significance, then you probably party hard, joining street fairs, Carnival celebrations,… etc. New Orleans is famous for its Mardi Gras party scene. For instance: the beads. If you give a beaded necklace to a girl, traditionally she flashes you and might imply sex.
waye zanivese or you can say bon anivese
I don't know about everyone else, but my family usually has a crayfish boil. A few days later, we go to a parade, with floats and candy and junk. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I go… to a lot of parades. I would never go to the ones in New Orleans though. ( too much crime) Then I eat king cake and ice cream with my family and bacon. Oh, and we get a flood of beads.

It is the day before Lent which is a movable date (as Easter). It is generally in February.
Because it's a French expression and in French adjectives come after their nouns.
jwayé zanivèsè / bon anivèsè
We don't usually say this in French
Mardi Gras or Shrove Tuesday 'Mardi Gras' means 'Fat Tuesday' in French. It is also called 'Pancake Tuesday' or ' Shrove Tuesday. It is the day before Ash Wednesday the be…ginning of Lent. On this Tuesday people celebrate and eat a lot of food because during Lent they don't eat as much. Mardi Gras was started in New Orleans, Louisiana. Mardi Gras is also the last day of the three-day Carnival festival. New Orleans is the most famous city to hold elaborate Mardi Gras celebrations, but a lot of other cities and towns celebrate Mardi Gras. Basically it is NOT just a reason to party, but the premise is to indulge in things that you are going to give up for Lent. And don't forget your beads.
