I WANNA KNOW SO I CAN PARTICIPATE IN IT!..........Can i celebrate in canada?!
Given the French influence in Canada I'm surprised you're not more informed on it. Shows more of my ignorance of Canada than anything now that I think about it. As the posters before have certainly informed you; you can celebrate Mardi Gras anywhere (preferably where there is bountiful amounts of alcohol to be had (so long as you're legal to drink of course). It's a fun time whether you use it as an excuse to drink or actually stick to all the fun stuff you do for it.

It's also celebrated in other cities along the gulf coast. Apparently the one in Galveston is a big deal. And it's celebrated in other countries, like Brazil, but they call it Carnival.

yes, the Carnival season ^-^
king cake is super yummy - basically like giant doughnut with colored frosting - oh and there's a baby Jesus hidden in one of the pieces - if you get the baby Jesus, you get to make the cake next year =P the baby used to be plastic but now at the stores i see that it's one of those edible sugary things - so drunk people don't choke on the baby Jesus I suppose - that would kind of ruin all the fun...

Only if you're a whore do you do that. I have tons of beads and nothing was shown.
