Mardi Gras or "Fat Tuesday" is a celebration in some US cities, but the French Quarter of New Orleans is most popular and well known Mardi Gras. It is the last night of eating, drinking, dancing in the streets before the Christian Day of Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten season. During Lent, many practicing Christians commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries as a way of forgiveness. The Lent season last for six weeks leading up to Easter. Most say that well over 100,000 people attend the celebrations of Mardi Gras festivities. Many people will do anything to get the beads that they wear around their neck, that is the fun and exciting part of Mardi Gras.

イースター(4月第2日曜日)の40日前が"Fat Tuesday"で、キリスト教ではこの日が過ぎると戒律を守り規則正しい生活をしなければなりません。
そのために人々は最期の1週間は飲み、食べ、踊り、怠惰な生活をおくります。アメリカではニューオーリンズを中心に南部の町では人々が仮装し練り歩くお祭りが繰り広げられ­ます。
しかしなんと言っても一番盛り上がるのはニューオーリンズのフレンチクォーターで行われる、マリ・グラで狭い一角に10万人以上の人々が集まり祭を祝うのです。
