Laissez les bons temps rouler - Let the Good Times Roll

Today would be a day that would make Marie Antoinette smile, she could declare freely 'Let them eat cake!' - a King Cake that is!

Those in Louisiana today are enjoying Mardi Gras and the rest of us are living vicariously watching it on TV and hopefully enjoying some King Cake anyway!

How are you spending your final day of Carnival? If you aren't in New Orleans or Rio, it may not be as big a deal for you. And for others, midnight tonight marks the begining of Lent, with tomorrow being Ash Wednesday. Some are observing 'Shrove Tuesday' today burning Palm Fronds from the previous year's Palm Sunday today to create the ashes that will be used on Ash Wednesday tomorrow.

I know this is also traditionally a day where Pancakes are enjoyed in the morning. Whether you are celebrating today so you can begin the season of Lent tomorrow, or are spending the day in more quiet observance and prayer, take a moment to enjoy the simple pleasures today, you will find them equally as meaningful!

How are you spending your Fat Tuesday?
