Washington's birthday is a United States federal
holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor
of our first President. Called "Presidents Day", today
is also an occasion to remember all of the Presidents, not just
George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday is February
Tomorrow is Mardi Gras, French for "Fat Tuesday",
reflecting the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty
foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. But
for many people, it is simply another reason to have a party. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
