Last year, Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, Presidents Day, and Mardi Gras all fell within three days of each other, and those three days were also in the middle of the Vancouver Olympics. Imagine me out changing my house flag every few hours!
When my hubby saw these earrings, he figured they would be the solution to my dilemma if Mardi Gras ever fell on Valentine's Day. Well, I just checked, and Mardi Gras will not fall on February 14 until 2040, and then again in 2051 and 2057. Perhaps my grandchildren (or grandnieces or grandnephews for that matter) can fully realize their usefulness.
Mardi Gras doesn't come until March 8 this year. Next year, though, it falls on my birthday!!
