The countdown to Mardi Gras, and the parade of king cakes, have begun. "Also known as Kings' Day or Twelfth Night, Jan. 6 celebrates the arrival of the three kings at Jesus' birthplace (12 days after Christmas) thus ending the Christmas season," said Becky Retz. "This festival of fun finds its roots in various pagan celebrations of spring, dating back 5,000 years." In Louisiana we celebrate this night in all sorts of ways. The mayor of New Orleans cuts the first official king cake and Zulu unveils their official Mardi Gras poster. Phunny Phorty Phellows take their annual raucous ride on a St. Charles Ave. Streetcar.
