Celebrating Mardi Gras

By February 12, 2013

Follow me on:

Mardi Gras is certainly not a Pagan holiday, but it's happening right now, and I know several of our readers are in New Orleans for the festivities. I asked a few Pagan friends who live in the NOLA area for their tips on things to see and do -- you know, when you're not flashing your boobs in exchange for beads -- and believe it or not, there are a lot of fun witchy things to do there (as well as things that aren't necessarily witchy, but cool for Pagans anyway): Witchy Things To Do in New Orleans.

One of the most fascinating things about New Orleans is its rich history of Vodou culture, which is as much a part of the city as the music and the amazing food. Before you go, be sure to read up on What is Vodou?
