Lots of different countries celebrate Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras is the last day before Lent begins. During Lent some people fast (which means they don’t eat very much) for 40 days and 40 nights.

Mardi Gras is a big celebration where people have big parties and eat lots of food before this fasting begins, that’s why it’s called Mardi Gras (which is French for Fat Tuesday)!

During the Mardi Gras parades and parties people often dress up and wear masks. There are lots of colours and music, it’s a time to have fun and celebrate before Lent starts.

Why not make a Mardi Gras mask to get into the festive spirit? Just download our template and get decorating!
