Mardi Gras and Carnival in FLE groups

Mardi Gras, also called Fat Tuesday, refers to events of the Carnival celebrations, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany (Three King's Day) and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday", reflecting the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season.

All week children will be making Carnival costumes to wear to the party that will take place at the end of the week on the 6th of February, 10AM to 1PM.
