takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is celebrated with
parades, “beads, doubloons, and trinkets”, masquerade balls and
King Cakes.

So join Holidays on the Net as we share this holiday
with you. We have the history behind Mardi Gras, pictures of
floats, crafts, coloring sheets, books, and a recipe to make

President’s Day
While originally intended to celebrate the birthday of the first US President, George Washington, the holiday has morphed into a general celebration of all past US Presidents.

With the passage of the Monday Holiday Law (1968), the federal celebration of George Washington’s birthday moved from its actual date, February 22nd, to the 3rd Monday of February. The celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s birth (February 12th) while no longer observed as a federal holiday is also customarily celebrated on President’s Day.
