Hello, and welcome to Twelfth Night! As today is Epiphany (and on a Sunday, too!), that means only one thing:
IT'S CARNIVAL TIME!
That's right! Twelfth Night is the official start to the Carnival season in south Louisiana! Mardi Gras occurs early this year, so it will be a short season. The balls and parades will begin (actually at least one ball in New Orleans is tonight), and the revelry begins from now until Ash Wednesday!
Today at our church, we celebrated Epiphany with the most adorable Epiphany Pageant ever! Lambs, angels, kings, shepherds....all so adorable. I've posted a few pictures for you!
So, welcome to the Mardi Gras season and as we say, laissez les bons temps rouler! For those of you with sensitive French ears, this is the 'cajun' translation for 'Let the Good Times Roll.!
