Traditionally, the Mardi Gras season begins on January 6, the Epiphany, or Three Kings’ Day when the Wise Men visited the Christ child, and continues through Mardi Gras Day, always 40 days before Easter which is set based on the spring equinox. Mardi Gras includes not only the “Throw Me Something, Mister” parades, but also balls and parties, where Mardi Gras royalty are celebrated.
