Mardi Gras takes place 46 days before Easter. Mardi Gras is the day before Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday. The most famous Mardi Gras celebration is held in New Orleans. Mardi Gras is an annual celebration called le mardi gras (literally, "fat Tuesday") or le carnaval in French. Mardi Gras has three official colors: purple (justice), gold (power), and green (faith).
