    Apparently Mardi Gras can fall on any Tuesday between February and March, but how do you you know which Tuesday it will be? anyone knows?

    Mardi Gras is the day before Ash Wednesday. If you don't know when Ash Wednesday is, it's always forty-six days before Easter and Fat Tuesday, which is always the day before Ash Wednesday.

    Easter can fall on any Sunday from March 23 to April 25 with the exact date to coincide with the first Sunday after the full moon following a Spring Equinox!

    If you're still confused, get a calendar with the printed holidays on it to see--it's the day before Ash Wednesday!

    By the way, this year Mardi Grass falls on March 8, which coincides with the first week of Spring Break.
