Do you celebrate Mardi Gras and/or St. Patrick's Day?
I don't, but just curious about others

Nope to both! Will take a green beer if offered.

No, but I did make King cupcakes this year (I've never had King Cake) for February birthdays at work and have been known to make something "cajun" to eat...we like gumbo, etoufee, sauce piquante, jambalaya, etc.
While we don't "celebrate" St. Patrick's day, I do cook corned beef and cabbage - while I know that it is not truly traditional Irish fare we do like it.
My mother's birthday was March 17. I always baked her birthday cake celebrating both.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.

I enjoyed Mardi Gras as a child in New Orleans where we were able to watch parades from my grandmother's balcony. Now I live in Lafayette in a neighborhood at the end of the parade routes and it is AWFUL!!!! I have to lay in provisions for the last few days of the Mardi Gras season because driving is so constricted.

We don't celebrate Mardi Gras but we celebrate Shrove Tuesday by eating pancakes (for breakfast at home -- for dinner at church (fundraiser for the church) and yes, we celebrate St. Patrick's Day -- corned beef and cabbage, always -- corned beef hash for breakfast the morning after and a reuben for lunch sometime!
EVERYONE it seems is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!!! Martha
