Today is A day
PTO pizza lunch
Did you know that today is Mardi Gras? Mardi Gras is a French word meaning "Fat Tuesday"--which originally signaled the last day of eating rich and fatty foods before fasting for Lent in the Christian religion. Today, Mardi Gras is also known as a day of celebration with parties and parades. Although most people associate New Orleans with Mardi Gras, it was actually Mobile, Alabama where the first Mardi Gras celebration took place!
