Mardi Gras, Carnivals in France

Mardi Gras is a festive time. This period marks the end of the "week of seven fat days" (formerly called "carnal days").

Mardi Gras is followed by Ash Wednesday and Lent, when Christians are encouraged to "eat lean", traditionally abstaining from meat.

Let's discover the different Carnivals in France:
