My house always feels so bare once the Christmas tree and decorations are put away. Somehow our home, which seems fine the month before Christmas, is now lacking something.
Luckily, Carnival season follows quickly behind Christmas. Traditionally it is thought to be bad luck to take down your Christmas tree before Twelfth Night or Epiphany -- that being the day that the "true" Christmas season ends. Since Epiphany is also the beginning of Carnival it makes sense that many people just transition from one holiday to the next here in Louisiana.
At last, an answer to the question of what to fill your bare house with after the holidays...a festive purple, green and gold Mardi Gras tree. I love Carnival and all its metallic wonder! ENJOY!
MardiGrasOutlet.com now carries a 6.5 foot tall Mardi Gras Tree. Perfect for a sparkling Mardi Gras themed tree!
