The Emperor and I met in New Orleans , so, even though it was a Science Fiction convention, not a Mardi Gras, this has always been a special holiday for us.
1. Make King cake. 2. Make begniets. 3. Make masks with lots of glitter and feathers. 4. Dress in purple, green and gold with lots of beads. 5. Eat pancakes and sausage for dinner. 6. Watch parades on You Tube - watch out here, some are family friendly, some are...not. 7. Make a parade!
