Mardi Gras Travel Flight Deals
Mardi Gras, the celebration of which begins on or after the feasts of the Epiphany, is a Christian (Catholic) tradition that is observed all over the world. With time, the celebrations of Mardi Gras have become even more popular; the carnivals- more grand. In the U.S.A., though it might be the most popular one, the carnival hosted in New Orleans is not the only one. There are many other cities that observe this holiday with the same dedication. Some of these cities organize carnivals, some organize magnificent balls, some host music festivals dedicated specially to Mardi Gras and some offer cruises with a Mardi Gras theme. Whatever their way of marking the day before Ash Wednesday, they make sure that everyone attending or taking part in the celebrations has a lot of fun.
Internationally, Italy (Venice, Rome etc.), Germany (Munich), Sweden (Stockholm) and Czech Republic (Prague) are some of the countries that go all out to mark this day. Door-to-door processions, vibrant carnivals, and eating a fastlagsbullar (a Swedish traditional sweet roll) are just some of the ways of celebrating Mardi Gras in these countries. If you want to explore the wonderful festivities taking place in different parts of the world, then book a flight and fly to any of the cities that celebrate this fascinating festival.
