Challenge #16 - Mardi Gras Colors

It's time for another 7 Kids College Fund Challenge!
Did you know that Mardi Gras falls on March 8 this year. To help celebrate Mardi Gras, we are using Mardi Gras Colors. I did some research and found some fun facts about Mardi Gras...

Mardi Gras occurs the day before Lent begins.

Mardi Gras is a French term, translated Fat Tuesday and was called this because it was the last day to "pig out" before Lent.

Mardi Gras is the last day of the Carnival Season before Ash Wednesday.

Mardi Gras has been celebrated since the middle ages.

Mardi Gras Colors have the following assigned meanings...

Purple - Justice
Green - Faith
Gold - Power

So, enough of the history lesson and on to the the challenge--
We want you to use Mardi Gras Colors in your projects this week.
