HISTORY OF MARDI GRAS The observance of a "Carnival" (aka Mardi Gras) originated in the middle of the second century in Rome when the Fast of the 40 days of Lent was preceded by a feast of several days during which time participants delivered themselves up to voluntary madness. In 1875 Louisiana declared Mardi Gras a legal state holiday.
