Let The Good Times Roll!

Even though I may be a bit north of New Orleans, I still love a good excuse for a celebration! 

Fat Tuesday 2 

The traditional colors of Mardi Gras are purple (symbolic of justice), green (symbolic of faith) and gold (symbolic of power). The accepted story behind the original selection of these colors originates from 1872 when the Grand Duke Alexis Romanoff of Russia visited New Orleans.  During his stay, he was given the honor of selecting the official Mardi Gras colors by the Krewe of Rex...thus, did these colors also become the colors of the House of Romanoff.

Go ahead.  Have a little fun.  It’s good for the soul! :)

All My Best
