Mardi Gras season is officially here. Woo Hoo! And we are Louisiana folk, so we are excited about all the upcoming festivities. The people at Fact Monster have an awesome and short quiz to see just how much you actually know about Carnival season here in the Bayou State.

Take the quiz, and pass it along to all your non Louisiana friends to show them what they are missing. No doubt they will want to come down for all the fun too. If you want to celebrate, and we know you do, there are fun and festive things to do every week up until Mardi Gras Day, which is February 28th this year. Here's to a safe and fun carnival season!


Here's a small preview of some of the questions:


  • What Does 'Mardi Gras' mean?
  •  What is the religious name for Mardi Gras?
  •  Many Mardi Gras events are organized by private clubs known as what?
  • What famous and historic neighborhood in New Orleans is Mardi Gras typically associated with?
  • What is hidden inside a Mardi Gras King Cake, the traditional dessert of the season?


The answers to these questions can be found here. Good luck on your Mardi Gras trivia, and here's to screaming 'Throw me somethin' Mister!' for the next couple of months! FYI, Fat Tuesday will be celebrated on February 28 this year.
