FAT TUESDAY

I dag er "FAT TUESDAY". Jeg er sikker på at mine danske venner undrer sig hvad betyder det?? FAT TUESDAY = betydning for de franske ord "Mardi Gras". Hvad laver du på FAT TUESDAY? Du spiser og drikker alle dårlige ting som du forlader for "LENT". (LENT er de six uger før påske og begynder i morgen med "Ash Wednesday".) Så masser mennesker i Louisiana (og Texas også) skal fejre FAT TUESDAY iaften..... Med som lakre Cajun med og måske de skal danse til en smule god Cajun musik!

Today is FAT TUESDAY. What does that mean? Well I am sure my Danish friends are wondering what on earth that is! FAT TUESDAY is the translation for the French term MARDI GRAS. So what do you do on FAT TUESDAY? Easy...you eat and drink all the bad stuff that you are going to give up for LENT. (LENT is the period of six weeks leading up to Easter and it begins with Ash Wednesday tomorrow.) This means that LOTS of people all over Lousiana (and Texas too!) will be celebrating FAT TUESDAY today.... with some yummy Cajun food and maybe dancing to some good ole Cajun music!

Bailey was born on Fat Tuesday ...
12 years ago! :) Isn't that a hoot? This year she still has a little time, her birthday is the 24th. :) I hope you are eating a paczki(sp) for me!
