Mardi Gras is a very special holiday. It is always celebrated on the last Tuesday before Lent, and there is no other day quite like it. It is a time for having fun, making believe, eating good food, and enjoying good friends. There are parades, dances, and people in costume. This holiday started hundreds of years ago in Europe as a way to welcome spring. Today, it is celebrated all over the world. Readers can get in the spirit by making a cardboard Mardi Gras float.
