New Orleans, LA, USA

It marks three things: Twelfth Night, The Epiphany, and the beginning of the Carnival season. Yes, while many people outside of New Orleans believe that Mardi Gras is a one day event, those of us living here know that it’s an actual season, kind of like Christmas. From January 6 through Fat Tuesday, New Orleanians will be celebrating.
