Mardi Gras at Brandon Woods of Dartmouth

Felines, birds, mystery and beauty came out at Brandon Woods of Dartmouth Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center as residents, visitors, and staff celebrated Mardi Gras. The residents showed off their ornate masks and beads while they enjoyed live Dixieland music by Dave Valerio and indulged in “Fat Tuesday” pancakes. Fat Tuesday is the colloquial name for Shrove Tuesday, the day before the beginning of Lent. In German it is known as Fetter Dienstag, and in French, Mardi Gras. Whatever it is called, it is most common in predominantly Catholic areas—except the Philippines. The original purpose of Shrove Tuesday was to prepare spiritually for the advent of Lent. People tend to indulge in sweet, rich and fatty foods as a last hurrah before the Lenten period of fasting that begins the next day on Ash Wednesday. Traditional pre-Lenten foods consumed on Fat Tuesday include pancakes, doughnuts and pastries.
