Mardi Gras, French for Fat Tuesday, refers to events of the Carnival celebrations, culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday, reflecting the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Christian season Lent. It also has became a single people's counter to the coupled-centric Valentine's Day.

A French expedition led by the LeMoyne brothers camped near what is now known as New Orleans on March 3, 1699...Mardi Gras is in honor of this. The idea of mystic societies was exported to New Orleans in 1856 when six businessmen gathered at a club room in New Orlean's French Quarter to organize a secret society that would observe Mardi Gras with a formal parade.  Mardi Gras mask tradition has its roots in these secret societies.
Mardi Gras celebrations are part of the basis of the slogan, Laissez les bons temps rouler, (Let the good times roll).  The true meaning of the famous Mardi Gras beads begins with their traditional colors, which we  owe to the Russian Grand Duke Alexis. During his visit in 1872, the newly founded New Orleans secret society Krewe of Rex chose the colors of the duke’s royal house for the beads that krewe members would throw from their parade float into the crowds of Mardi Gras revelers.
Later, they assigned meaning to each festive color: Purple stood for justice, green for faith and gold for power. The idea was to toss the beads to those folks in the crowd who seemed to exhibit these traits.  The fortunate people who caught them were said to get good luck for the year ahead. Though the beads were originally glass, nowadays they’re made of plastic, and are one of the most popular and fun Mardi Gras traditions.
