Forum novelties brings you fun all year long, like this mardi gras accessory that adds to the celebration whether you're in new orleans or not. The traditional colors of mardi gras are purple (symbolic of justice), green (symbolic of faith) and gold (symbolic of power). Mardi gras is celebrated not only in new orleans, but also in the neighboring gulf coast region and numerous cities and towns in louisiana and around the country. Similar celebrations are also held in the brazilian city of rio de janeiro. Regardless of where the festivals take place, however, all share a celebratory atmosphere. To new orleanians, mardi gras specifically refers to fat tuesday, the tuesday before lent and the highlight of the season. For party invitations and celebrations elsewhere, mardi gras can also be used less specifically the whole carnival season.
