You will notice that Mardi Gras has three distinct colors that all mean something different. Purple meaning justice, Green means faith and Gold means power. All good things to stand for when used in a good way (of course). They do, don't worry. Now you will notice people who are wearing masks, costumes and face paint. Feel free my mystics to do the same because there are not enough occasions where we get to wear costumes in this realm. Anything goes here and I mean anything. I saw many people who's costumes were made from body paint.
If you have any other questions or opinions, please feel free to comment. I am pleased to hear from everyone.
