8 Ways To Be a Hot Mess on Fat Tuesday

Fat Tuesday is rapidly approaching! This means we need to sew all our wild oats before Lent starts. If you’re a Lent participator, you have to give up something that you usually cannot do without, such as Facebook or sweets! Whether you’re Catholic or not, Mardi Gras (which is actually French for Fat Tuesday) is a universal celebration of letting loose and watching the good times roll. (History Lesson: The term Fat Tuesday refers to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lent season, which begins on Ash Wednesday.)

Most of us probably won’t be able to make it down to Louisiana on February 21st to party in the French Quarter with the rest of New Orleans, which is why I am here to help you out. I’ve come up with a list of eight ways that you can make it seem like you are right there in the action of Mardi Gras with all the other drunken hot messes without having to leave the comfort (or discomfort, let’s be real) of your dormitory.
