It's Mardi Gras in Westport. OK, so there are no elaborate public celebrations that include cleverly designed floats or beaded necklaces, but it's Fat Tuesday, nevertheless. And for many, today is a day to indulge in your favorite things before Lent, a time when some Christian observers often sacrifice something they love, such as chocolate, during the 40 days before Easter.
That being said, The Daily Westport wants to know how you are celebrating today. Are there any family traditions you embrace or special foods you eat? Is there something you're thinking about giving up for Lent that you're getting your fill of today?
We'd love to hear from you. Send your Mardi Gras photos, videos or/and stories to reporter Vanessa Inzitari at firstname.lastname@example.org .
