I'm not Catholic, and was new in Louisiana at the time. It was explained that whoever gets the baby has to bring the next King Cake. For many years, I understood that to be the only significance of the baby.
January 6th is the 12th night of Christmas, the celebration of the Epiphany, when the three wise men arrived with their gifts of gold, Frankincense, and myrrh for the Baby Jesus. It's also the commencement of the Mardi-Gras season in Louisiana.
Tonight is one of, if not the largest mardi gras balls/show in Acadiana and Bernadette Lee and I will be the hosts for the evening. Last night was rehearsal, and I snapped photos of Bernie in all her craziness.
............And we have a LOT of beads, good ones! The Independent Parade rolls Tuesday at 2:00. I know the weather looks "Iffy". The forecast says "Scattered" showers. I think we'll be OK. I believe in the power of positive thinking! Look for the KTDY/ Townsquare Media Float
