The Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday festival, an annual traditional festival, originated from Christianity. This is the day when all the people will bring all the food they have stored to celebrate.

Mardi in French means Tuesday, Gras is fat or redundant. The name of this traditional Mardi Gras festival comes from Christian countries in the West. Most of them often have the custom of storing food and family food for many days. Later, they brought all these foods for use on the third day that all Christians must be vegetarian, abstain from meat according to the law.

Gradually, Mardi Gras is no longer a traditional holiday for Christians but has become a real festival with frantic parades, along with some party parties in certain countries.
