Colors of Mardi Gras. What do they mean to YOU?
Did you know that “Mardi Gras” means “fat tuesday” in french? Mardi Gras is also the last day of Shrovetide… a three day celebration of merrymaking associated with carnival. On Shrove Tuesday some reflect on wrongs and things to repent or of things to make ammends for. Then comes Ash Wednesday….Lent.
The colors of mardi gras are gold, emerald green, and royal purple. These colors used to have specific meanings and not just a representation of the “holiday”. Gold stood for Power. The Sparkling Emerald Green stood for Faith. Royal Purple stood for Justice. Beads of each color were given to those who represented the trait that color symbolized.
Which color would represent You? Which color would You like to represent You? (They are not always the same. Lucky YOU if they are!)
Well. . . Here is hoping you have a wonderful Mardi Gras. Laissez le bon temps rouler!
Spring time brings out the volunteers in our community as well as the first responders. Let’s support our community and make our neighborhoods a better place to live.
Spring brings new life in so many ways. The plant life are blooming. The weather is nice enough to be outdoors more regularly. April showers bring May flowers…and fires keep fire fighters on their toes… storms keep the storm chasers busy so we stay informed. While that sounds like positive to negative, it is just truth. Our Emergency management organizations and public servants for city and county alike are very busy this time of year also. How does this relate to photography?
I do event photography as well. I am hoping that YOU will join the Wagoner County Emergency Management team this SATURDAY–March 25th for the Expo they are hosting at Coweta Intermediate High School.
Photos of this event will be posted in a gallery (click here) so check back and see what happened at the Expo!
There is a scheduled blood drive to take place at the Expo as well…so be sure to sign up for that too! Can’t wait to watch the Fire Fighter Challenge! Will Your Team win?
