PostHeaderIcon Epiphany

Today is Epiphany (6th day) and the official start of the Mardi Gras season. So this weekend we will be splurging on a Kings Cake. King Cakes are a tradition in all of Louisiana eventhough they are most associated with New Orleans. Each part of the cake has a symbolic meaning. The shape of the cake represents the circle the Three Kings took to evade King Herrod. The 3 colors represent the 3 Kings and the Baby that is always hidden is the Christ Child. Many more traditions follow this cake but that is the most important one to me. Here is where will be going to get mine and they do mail order. =) There is also some Mardi Gras tidbits there if ya wanna peek.

Very few people in Louisiana do NOT have Mardi Gras beads of some sort. Here are a few of mine. They really aren't good for anything after the celebrations except as visual reminder of what a grand time you had through the season.

About Me

My Photo
Balinda (RebelChick)
Just an everyday girl trying to find my way in the world to live life fiercely and passionately. I was a signature tagger for several years but art journaling has replaced that passion and it feeds my soul creativiely and spiritually. I also homeschool my DD, scrapbook, play around in photography, spoil my cats and drive my hubby insane on a daily basis. My faith in the Lord helps me juggle all these blessings. I keep this blog because it makes me happy. Sometimes I blog a lot and other times it collects a little dust. Thanks for visiting and being my friend.♥
