O Mardi Gras tree, how lovely are thy branches

Mardi Gras tree

With Mardi Gras falling two to three months after Christmas depending on the year, many New Orleanians keep their Christmas trees up and swap their red and green decorations for purple and gold ornaments on the feast of the Epiphany (Jan. 6).

From king cake babies to crowns, Mardi Gras trees can be found in businesses getting in the Carnival spirit throughout Louisiana. Whether you’re having a king cake party or live on the parade route, Mardi Gras trees are a staple in many Southern households.

Where have you seen Mardi Gras trees in the shops of windows around town?
