Promotional Items for Mardi Gras
Thursday, February 12th, 2015
The Mardi Gras celebration takes place each year the day before Ash Wednesday, 47 days before Easter (with slightly different regional interpretations as to the length of the holiday). In French, the term “Mardi Gras” translates literally to "Fat Tuesday," which in the Catholic religion was the traditional day to feast before the fasting began on Ash Wednesday. Since most settlers in the New Orleans area hailed from Spain or France, both countries home to large Catholic contingencies, Mardi Gras became a traditional feast and carnival day in this region of the United States.
Parties and parades in various other cities have taken root, and your workplace can join in the festivities as well with promotional products like brightly colored, custom imprinted balloons or Mardi Gras themed spirit accessories.
