Mardi Gras Beads Are Definitely Not a Simple Subject



It really is a shame how little people know about Mardi Gras beads up in the northern states. As a matter of fact, it's just a darn shame how little people know about the actual Mardi Gras celebration itself. All you have to do is go to a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans to know that something different is going on down there.

Definitely Not Your Normal Run of the Mill Parade

One of the first things that you will notice is that they are throwing lots of things other than Mardi Gras beads out of the floats that go by. Toys, Moon Pies, candy and yes of course lots of bead necklaces. Also the parades seem to go on forever and can seem like they are 20 blocks long.

The Parades Go Round and Round the Blocks & Back Again

That's because southerners just love a good parade and they hate to see one end so early. So the parades down there simply wind around the block and just keep coming by again and again and again until everyone has finally had enough. Now that's a trick that northern states can learn from.

New Orleans Cops Are Big Black and Mean Looking

I also liked the part when the New Orleans cops went by in the parade. Hey! If you think the cops in your city are big and tough then you gotta see the cops in New Orleans. None of these guys were under six foot tall and they all had arms as big as my legs. Big black and mean looking. All of them.

Know Your Different Grades of Mardi Gras Beads

Another thing that you will learn down there is that there are different grades of Mardi Gras beads. The necklaces with smaller beads, they toss out of the floats by the dozen. However; there are necklaces with big "globe" beads and even some with a plastic shot glass on them that the crowd really gets excited over.
