Happy Mardi Gras!

This morning on the radio I heard a talk show host say that even though he isn't Catholic or even Christian, he was going to give up something for Lent. It's interesting how some Catholic customs have managed to soak into the popular culture like that.

This link from the Franciscans has a brief history of Mardi Gras and its roots in the Catholic Church.
