Happy Mardi Gras! Or... Lundi Gras in this case. For once, I'm sending out my holiday freebie one day early! I figure this time, people might want to have a whole day to work out their outfits for whatever they're planning, or maybe some people wouldn't be able to get on on Tuesday 'cause they're gettin' too wildly drunk in their other life. Either way, take and enjoy!
A simple, elegant mask in the traditional colors of Mardi Gras! Purple for justice, green for faith, and gold for power. You also get BEADS! And you didn't even have to flash me!
All you need do is just join Masqueraderie (ah yes, here is where my wicked plot comes in), find it in the notices and grab it!
A random Discovery Channel moment:
Mardi Gras is actually descriptive of a season of feasting that takes place to get ready for the fasting or "sin deprivation" in the season of Lent. The whole Carnivale season actually begins on "Twelth Night", or twelve days after Christmas. Mardi Gras day is what is happening tomorrow, which is the final day so naturally the last big bangin' party before you have to be all pious and conservative. Masks are so synonymous with this holiday because you were supposed to be able to release all of your inhibitions without having to excuse anything to your preacher or your third grade math teacher the next morning. Go ahead and flash your boobies! No one is going to know who's behind 'em if you're wearing a mask!
Or you can go to England and have pancakes. Pancakes, or a night of partying, parades, and bare boobies. Of course, this would be completely dependant on the quality of the pancakes in question, and the possible hangover component of the partying. Like I said, pick one.
