if you consider throwing 3-cent plastic beads at women willing to show me boobers as "celebrating mardi gras", then yes, I celebrate mardi gras.

From personal experience (I lived in southern Louisiana until Katrina) I'd guess about 90% of the people who celebrate Mardi Gras in New Orleans don't observe Lent. My husband is a Catholic and doesn't, though to be fair, a huge majority of the people who skip the Lent part probably don't know it exists.

@foolsdance: I live in a predominantly Hispanic, Catholic city, so I would guess our ratios are reversed. Maybe 10% of the people who observe Lent celebrated Mardi Gras. I expect to see a lot of ashy foreheads today.
