Mardi Gras aka a Fat Tuesday: there are other names too…
Well here we are less than an hour away from Mardi Gras. This event brings me back to my youth, when I was in College and wanted to go to Brazil to experience the “Real Mardi Gras” well instead I remained a nice “well behaved youth” finished school, got my degree and off I went to the US Army as an Officer….
When I left the service, I had dreams again of wanting to go the Mardi Gras Celebrations in Brazil. Well that did not happen, instead I ended up dating a Brazilian Native😊! Not sure if you are aware but in Brazil there is a mass invasion of tourists. The country has about 70 % of their visitors that come during Mardi Gras aka Carnival.
Keep in mind even though I missed out going to the “Mecca of Carnival”, I managed to have a good time in Germany. Keep in mind Germans celebrate Fat Tuesday on Thursday😊Fastnacht means "Eve of the Fast or Fasching. Many people think Schmutziger Donnerstag is Dirty Thursday but if you understood German slang it actually is Fat Thursday.
The days might be off, but the parties, the debauchery is no where near as in Brazil but never the less it is a fun time in Germany. Now keep in mind most European Countries Celebrate this same even just at different time and not to the extent that Brazil does.
Now at the point in my life, I can live without all the Carnival Events, quite frankly now I prefer just reading about it, or seeing it on video. No need to part take in the revelries. Just like I do not need to go to the Halloween Festivities in West Hollywood, CA.
I guess it comes with age. This in a way reminded me of my father, when I was living and working in Germany…I wanted to come “home” during my holidays and vacations. My father said, you can see us anytime, go enjoy and see Europe as if you would never see it again. He was right. I have only been back to Europe four times, since then all I did was talked about it a lot.
So, with that said, live life as if it was your last day! If you are young and adventurous go enjoy Fat Tuesday and take pictures and share it with us, so we can enjoy your fun vicariously. So with that said good night! I am older and ready to go to bed😊
