Those of you who have been sharing tea with me for several years will probably remember this photo I used to welcome Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) during Tuesday Tea a few years ago.
Same cup, similar beads, different backdrop, and most assuredly a different camera.
I have no King Cake, the traditional cinnamon laced, often fruit or cream cheese stuffed Danish pastry that is braided, then iced in the traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green, and gold. Hidden in each King Cake is a tiny plastic baby. The person who finds
the baby must buy the next King Cake or host the next party. My plastic babies are floating in my green tea, which of course, I won't be drinking, but show symbolically.
Do you have the Mardi Gras spirit? Will "Fat
Tuesday" be the day before you fast? Whether you celebrate Mardi Gras or not, please share your T stories below. Feel free to show your King Cakes, plastic baby dolls, or beads. The
photos don't have to be taken on Tuesday, and it's fairly obvious, they
can even be taken from your archives, as one of mine has been today. Please use the
direct link to your T post, not your blog, so we can find you easily.
And, celebrate it or not, have a great Mardi Gras.
