Mardi Gras is a heck of an alternative to Pancake day! It’s unclear if most people today celebrate it to mark the beginning of lent, but they sure honor the day’s purpose of indulgence. Mark the day in your own way with a Mardi Gras SVG - embrace the spirit of the holiday and go for lots of bright colors and audacious designs!
The good folks of New Orleans are probably onto something by commencing lent with a handover - the mere prospect of food and drink is probably very painful, come Ash Wednesday. You just need to maintain that aversion for 40 days!
