Can you believe that in 154 years, Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans have only been canceled 13 times! According to the Numerolgy columnof the March edition of Fast Company titled “Mardi Gras Mambo” & written by Margaret Rhodes, some of the reasons for canceling have been Yellow Fever & riots during the Reconstruction.  Not even Hurricane Katrina stopped the festivities.  I had no idea Mardi Gras had been celebrated so far back in the day.

Happy Friday & Happy Mardi Gras everybody!
