May 14, 2010, Newsletter Issue #256: Mardi Gras Traditions Around the World

Tip of the Week

Carnival and Mardi Gras are celebrated the world over. Beads, sequins, feathers are somewhat standard features. Although some things are the same, there are some differences how Mardi Gras is celebrated across the world. In Southern Italy, people dress up in costumes and put on an ancient play during Mardi Gras. In Nice, France people wear giant masks in the Mardi Gras parade (it looks like a bunch of walking heads with tiny bodies) and in Binche, Belgium people dress in colorful clown costumes with ostrich feathers on their heads and dance in the streets.
