We love celebrating fun holidays in our homeschool, and Mardi Gras is no exception. I have to admit before we studied it I had no idea what it was for. But your kids are going to love learning about it with our free Mardi Gras coloring pages.
Ok, so Mardi Grass is connected to Easter, in fact, it takes place 47 days before Easter. So the date changes every year.
In 2023 however, Mardi Gras will take place on February 21st, 2023.
My mind blew up when I discovered Mardi Gras was another name for Shrove Tuesday, which in the UK is more lovingly known as Pancake Day. Another name used in America for this holiday is Fat Tuesday (as Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday!) I thought Mardi Gras was a festival, not a religious holiday! I’d been living in America for over 3 years before I realized! Doh!
The biggest celebration is in New Orleans and people wear purple, green and gold.
