  • Traditional Mardi Gras beads are purple, green, and gold colors.
  • The purple symbolizes justice; the green represents faith; and the gold signifies power.
  • If you are participating in the Mardi Gras carnival this year or hosting your own Mardi Gras party, make sure you get plenty of colorful beads!
  • King Cakes are traditionally eaten as part of the tradition of Epiphany, from January 6th through Mardis Gras Day.
  • Epiphany comes from a Greek word that means "to show." Jesus first showed himself to the three wisemen and to the world on this day.
  • As a symbol of this Holy Day, a tiny plastic baby is placed inside each King Cake.
  • The King Cake tradition is thought to have been brought to New Orleans from France in 1870.
