Mardi Gras - Monastery Style!
Whatever you want to call it -- Mardi Gras, Fasching, Carnival, Fat Tuesday -- it all commonly means a last day of feasting and good, light-hearted fun before Lenten fasting and abstinance begins.
What do nuns do to celebrate? Well, we've gathered a collection of funny hats, wigs, masks, etc. that we mix with scarfs, brightly colored fabric, some jewelry and whatever else may be at hand and dress up. We enjoy some tasty treats and just have fun relaxing together -- and of course, take some photos to record the memories of our "costume creations."
So, enjoy an extra treat or two today -- and Happy Mardi Gras!
