The Years (plural) Without A Christmas
"Of christmas it is indulgence. Christmas has long been time to break out the good booze and gorge yourself on sweet desserts made with expensive imported spices. To say nothing of the gift giving you know who didn't like all of those things oliver cromwell when he and his puritan forces took over england in sixteen forty five. They vowed to do away with decadence and went full. Alan rickman sheriff of nottingham and cancelled. Christmas shops were ordered to stay open on december. Twenty fifth and soldiers patrolled the streets with orders to seize any and all food. They found being prepared for a feast. It would take no less than restoring a king to the throne in this case. Charles the second to get christmas back. Puritans weren't exclusive to their native england and a bunch of them thought the spoiled beauty of the new world could really use some severe self-denial the puritans we refer to as pilgrims and about whom many myths were dispelled in. Our recent thanksgiving episode were even more orthodox in their puritanism than cromwell bonus fact that parallels the split between the amish and the mennonites. The amish broke off because the mennonites weren't strict enough since the puritans were among the first europeans to establish themselves in what would become america celebrating. Christmas was not a thing. It wasn't simply that they didn't celebrate it themselves. They didn't want anyone to celebrate the holiday. They had dubbed fools tied as an england shops and schools were expected to be open though. Interestingly churches were ordered to be closed on christmas one of the two days a year when even the laziest christian can be bothered to turn up. It was more than the frivolity and gluttony that they minded they viewed it as not properly christian. Puritans followed the bible very strictly. If something wasn't in the bible like taking any day for rest other than a sunday it might as well have come straight from the devil that would include the idea of resting on the day that jesus was born but since the bible also doesn't specify what day that is no big loss s historian stephen this inbound explains puritans were fond of saying that if god had intended for the anniversary of the city to be observed he would surely have given some indication as to when that anniversary occurred. The date of december twenty fifth wasn't officially the mass of christ until the fourth century. When pope julius the first subsumed the roman festival of saturnalia into a christian celebration. Which gave us some of our most enduring traditions like holly in candles. Puritans were also not keen on the papacy so they didn't care if it was official for twenty two years from sixteen fifty nine to sixteen eighty one. The celebration of christmas was actually outlawed. In the massachusetts bay colony the law went into effect one year after the brits had gotten their christmas restored by well the restoration the laws stated that in order to prevent disorders to the great dishonour of god and offensive others. Anyone found celebrating the holiday. Either by forbearing of labor feasting or any other way would be find a hefty five shillings on one christmas day. Plymouth governor william bradford noticed some people playing an old equivalent of baseball and ordered them all to get back to work. Now would be an appropriate time. If i make an aside and i may because it's my show to remind people that religious freedom is when you say that's against my religion. I can't do it but religious freedom does not mean that's against my religion. You can't do it. Even after the ban on christmas was repealed in sixteen. Eighty one staunch puritans still fought against christmas celebrations for decades in sixteen eighty six. The newly appointed governor of the dominion of new england closed shops on christmas day and sponsored a holiday service. This idea was unpopular enough with enough people. That soldiers had to accompany the governor to church. Those sorts of protests of christmas would continue but their focus would shift from celebrating at all to the way in which it was celebrated and what a way it was. We aren't talking about a family sing. Song and three helpings of pie or even old timey whistling colonial celebrations of christmas looked more like mardi gras mashed with halloween. If it took place during spring break drunken revellers take to the streets wearing scary masks or dressed like animals singing boisterously and demanding food drink and money under threat of violence ad in the ancient pagan roots of those practices. And we see that. The puritans had quite a lot to get their noses out of joint about boston minister. Cotton mather preached to his congregation more than thirty years. After the law's repeal the feast of christ's nativity is spent in reveling dicing carding masking. And in all licentious liberty by mad mirth by long eating by hard-drinking i- lewd gaming await. Those are meant to be bad things. After the american revolution or the kerfuffle of ungrateful colonials as the british call at surreal thing. You don't have to google it. Just trust me. English customs fell out of favor and since celebrating. Christmas had come over from england. It began to peter out to. It wasn't even declared a federal holiday until after the civil war in eighteen seventy. It was around that time that americans. Reinvented christmas and it changed from a raucous pagan carnival. Holiday into a family centered. Day of nostalgia nostalgia used to be considered a mental illness by the way. But that's a story for another day. So why the shift. The early nineteenth century was a period of class conflict high employment and of rioting by the lower classes that tended to come to a head around christmastime one such christmas riot in eighteen twenty eight moved the newark city council to institute. The city's first police force in response. This motivated certain members of the upper class to change the way. People viewed christmas literary figures like washington irving the man who helped co defy the until recently launched view of christopher columbus in eighteen nineteen. Urban wrote the sketch book of geoffrey crayon gent a series of stories about the celebration of christmas in an english manor house wherein the rich person invites pour into his home and the two classes of people get along swimmingly and celebrate with quote ancient customs. As nice as that is it's worth noting that the details of the books revelry don't parallel any celebration. We know of irving actually attending and seems to have been completely imagined. It's the season of giving and you

How Did Juneteenth Get Started?
"Every year on June nineteenth, millions of people across America. Come together to celebrate June eighteenth with parties parades, prayer, breakfast and golf tournaments, cookouts and music. The holiday is now officially recognized in forty seven states plus Washington DC though it hasn't been made a national holiday yet, despite having been around for more than one hundred and fifty years. We spoke with Paula Austin a professor of African American Studies and History at Boston University. She said You'd be surprised. There are many students who get to my class, and they sort of never learned about the history of enslavement. They've never learned about the civil rights movement. I think I've had students who because of where they're from, or their families know about June eighteenth, and of actually participated in the celebrations, but most students come, and they don't know. But let's go back to the beginning on June nineteenth eighteen, sixty, five more than two months after confederate general Robert e Lee surrendered to ulysses s grant at APP Maddix which all, but ended the civil war, a US army officer by the name of Major General Gordon Granger. In Huston Texas with two momentous announcements, the end of the civil war, and with it the end to slavery. Nobody is quite sure why it took so long for news of summation to reach Texas several stories have been told throughout the years though none has ever been confirmed including one of an earlier messenger who was killed on his way to Texas to tell the news of freedom. Others believe that some enslavers truth, but simply continued going about business as usual. The most likely is simply that there were not enough troops to enforce the emancipation proclamation whether enslaved people knew about it or not, so things remained status quo. That is until Major General. Grainger showed up. After granger's announcement, some of the two hundred fifty thousand freed people in Texas, immediately left for the promise of true freedom in the north, while others traveled to rejoin family members one formerly enslaved person, Molly Herrell said in the slave narratives of Texas. We all walked down the road singing shouting to beat the band. Others stayed defined pain work in the fields elsewhere. That day marks what is now often called lack independence day, or the fourth of July. It's the American celebration of freedom from slavery. June teen was first observed in Texas in eighteen, sixty six. It wasn't officially recognized as a holiday in any state until Texas did so in Nineteen, seventy nine. Since then only North Dakota South Dakota and Hawaii have declared a holiday. In recent years both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate have formally recognized June nineteenth as June, tenth Independence Day. Various movements to grant the day status is a national holiday are ongoing. US Senator Cory Booker said in two thousand eighteen. On this day we must confront ugly parts of our history and honor the slaves who suffered and died under a repressive regime. We must also pay tribute to all those who had the strength and conviction to fight to end slavery and keep our Union together. June teeth independence. Day is also an important moment to recognize how far we've come and take note of how far we have yet to go. Certainly during the original June eighteenth, there was still a lot of work to be done. It came just months after the civil war ended and two years after the emancipation proclamation was signed by President Abraham Lincoln the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which abolished slavery, had been passed by Congress was well on its way to being ratified by the states, but the fourteenth and fifteenth guaranteeing equal protection and the right to vote to all citizens, regardless of skin color were still a couple years off. And not all enslaved people in Texas were immediately freed some held by defiant plantation owners were not emancipated until much later, some formerly enslaved people who tried to leave historical reports show were tracked down and killed. Many more stepped into a future of poverty, fear and uncertainty. Austin suggests that many Americans ignorance about June eighteenth stems from a disinclination to completely face the country's past slavery, and it's far reaching and continuing aftermath. Still? June eighteenth has persevered. Its observance has waned through the years under the oppression of Jim Crow laws and attitudes, but the festivities that began in Texas eventually spread to more states and the idea of commemorating block independence picked up through the civil rights era of the nineteen sixties, and the parties continued today. Austin, said the kinds of celebrations that I've seen and been a part of have been incredibly wonderful there about black culture there about black history there about the resistance and the resilience of the black community. Several years before grainger made his do nineteenth declaration in Galveston famed American Orator Frederick Douglass himself formerly enslaved, spoke to an abolitionist group in New York about the fourth of July. As being dave independence, and how it didn't fit for all Americans, he said what the American slave is your fourth of July I answer a day that reveals to him more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. Opel Lee a former schoolteacher counselor in Fort Worth. Texas has been instrumental in trying to get June. Tenth recognized as a national, holiday. This year she'll walk from the Fort Worth Convention Center to the will. Rogers Coliseum, leading a caravan, urging people to sign a petition for the cause leave who is ninety three years old has been part of the Fort Worth June eighteenth festivities for more than forty years. Last year, it's as important as the fourth of July. In fact I dream some day. They celebrate from the nineteenth to the fourth like they do Mardi Gras. I haven't dreamed as large as the Rose Bowl or the macy's parade, but I'm getting there. To those who observed June eighteenth despite its shaky beginnings, and it's still unfulfilled pledge the day still holds the promise of freedom, independence, equality, ideas, and ideals always celebrating.
The Big Easy (with Father Brad Doyle)
"And welcome to misinformation true you podcast for ladies and engines who love Cool Trivia and sticking it to annoying teams a quiz where your hosts I'm Lauren and I'm Julia Hate Y'all. Hey, Hey, do you feel? Do you feel the presence of the Lord in this podcast today in this podcast today? Cast in House yes yeah. It might be because we have our first. Holy. Man of the cloth, a man of the cloth who I'm planning on calling every possible iteration of your holiness and Monsignor. Today. Today we have a father brad of the quizzical papist on Hello Father Brad. How're you doing? Thanks for having me on. We are thrilled to have you on so excited. father. Brad sent us an email and he is a listener, and he's not lying about that because he is a priest and can't lie. Entrap Bruce Lie, but I'm not lying about that. That is the one that's one thing. I didn't lie about okay. Great perfect, thank you, thank you for clarifying. And he is here to talk to us about some stuff, so father Brad. What are you? GonNa talk to us about today. Yes, so I was listening to a couple weeks back and y'all had an episode of Buffalo. Yes, and I really enjoyed that episode I I love when people speak about things they love, and they care about, and I really care about a lot of things, the faith being won right relationship with God, but also my city. Where my family's from my my history, our culture people know this on my podcast. I'm talking about Mardi Gras the time talking about music, I'm talking about food and and so I reached out and I was like hey. I think they would enjoy kind of deep dive into New Orleans. As an episode. I'm so excited for this because I. Admittedly have never been to New Orleans. Although many Louisianans. Oh, Lord, what's the Deborah and we're going to get into that I got. Using Indians Louisianans have told me like. Oh, you gotta get down there and have some shrimp to fe. experienced the joy of New Orleans, so. Yeah, yeah, I just allow me to bathe in the knowledge of the south. I was you in crab? Boil right now. Sounds a little painful. Be Baptized and Gumbo. Is that service you provide in your church Father Brad. I cook. I Cook like the other day. I went over in at a social distance, sat and and prisoners, driveway and boiled to Sachse, crawfish and like just gave it to him and sat at. It's socially distant. Right off, but so I I do do that, but they usually eat it. They don't pour it on their head or it on themselves. I mean that's the waste, so that's understandable. Who Hey please. The floor is yours Sir Nice okay, so we're gonNA start with pronunciation. Very while the city derives its name from the city of early-on, France. It's not pronounced that way or else people think you are conceded. I'm in New Orleans. So, it's some other mistaken. Situations are new, Orleans or even worse knowledge wins okay. That's very touristy. Okay, One's going around. Saying Nolan's in New Orleans like when we kept referring to Chicago is Chinatown. From What he says, so the best way to say New Orleans is just a smash two words together and just say New Orleans. Let's try like Toronto. Toronto Yeah Yeah. New Orleans okay, and if you live in new, Orleans you're a newer Linian. Okay important, okay, so history! I think it's historically interesting because it's. It's kind of very different from a lot of the country, our country. As is the case with most of the Americas the human history of South Louisiana begins with native Americans right. There were there. And the major tribes inhabiting the area, or the president. Of President of the Chitter Maka and the choctaw tribes, and what's cool is the chicken Maka are the only native tribe of Louisiana. He's still inhabit part of their ancestral land, so we still have people who are a part of the tribe that still inhabit where their ancestors lift our. And many of the rivers streets still bear their the language of the choctaw. For instance there's a street called Chop Tulips, which is just really hard to pronounce even harder to spell. But it is right there on the river, and a lot of stuff is on top of tulips now it's. Exploding section of the city and that's actually a choctaw word. It's not French anish or Haitian or anything. okay. New Orleans. As we know it now is the result of a French colony. Probably know that is founded in seventeen eighteen by Montreal Frenchman and this is you know. French people have these long names a John. Baptiste Lemond be in Ville. But we just call him. Be in Ville feels like a the founder of New Orleans. Chose New Orleans because of the high elevation like where it's at. It's actually has a natural levee where it's located like the French quarter now is where the original spotless, and it didn't flood during Katrina so the French quarter didn't flood. who was all the surrounding areas that flooded?

A mealy filled different because I was gonNA have a dad I. everybody else had two cars in a garage two incomes their DADS were there soccer coaches at our liberty coaches.

A Trish, I I I, I did three things very very well. I got great grades I was a superb athlete. And I was also bowling and I use violence as my first way to medicate my. My mom remarried when I was nine. She married an old World War Two. Vet, a guy who was there on d day, the great thing about this man was that he taught me at a Thai Thai. Shave my face, open doors or women. Really old school ways I think lost in a generation or two, and I'm grateful to them and most mostly unbreathable that he was seventeen years a sobriety. And is exactly what my mother needed and in many ways exactly what I needed, misstep misstep. but what happened was for me was puberty. Right around twelve or thirteen right his cougars kicking and I was entering my freshman year of high school. I found a solution alcohol, marijuana and cocaine I also wanted to show off in front of the girls, and so between the peer pressure of school, looking at pretty girls, and the availability of drugs and alcohol I was well on my way to find my new solution to my inner pane. Did that for a few years might pattern. High School was that I would drink on Friday. Nights drove on Saturday mornings I would again drink on Saturday nights throat on Sunday mornings in the insanity of that going on for four years straight still not hitting square in the is. when all my friends were.

My group has developed campaign to educate the public about general fire dynamics fire safety and what to do in case of a dwelling fire. The cornerstone of this is this as good as it was hoped that would be. The cornerstone of this campaign is called close before you does and that C L O s e not clothing.

"mardi gras" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"What's a supercrew Josh? Well a supercrew the best crew there there well so typically there's a couple of qualifiers one they're usually Very well-funded. Yes large membership And they'll they're parades will occur within the last few days before and including Mardi gras yet and these are the ones like you were saying that. Have SOME OF THEM. Three hundred foot long Floats or you know. Like a hundred floats in their crew. Right these are the ones that get the celebrities in that Convertible at the front. Yeah and just like having corporate sponsorship it was customary to not have outsiders as like the king of your parade think so And then it was the crew of bacchus that was the first to kind of break from that tradition nineteen. Sixty-nine Danny Kaye famous wig designer. What does that mean? I don't even know really okay. I thought there was some like serious in joke that I was okay. Just random yeah. Gotcha didn't know. He was a famous musical actor right. Yeah and WIG Design Jer And the the parade format is basically where the captain. I think we were calling them. Leaders leaders to crew leader. Yeah They are the head procession. They're usually on afloat that is Or they could be on horseback. Yeah or in that convertible when we're talking about and then it is followed in succession by officers kings Queens. Sometimes you got maids and Dukes and everyone's just having a good old time right and so you said something about The themes right. Yes so each parade processions theme. There's like you said there's no overall theme Mardi Gras but there's a theme for each and every parade and the the crew selects it every year. They're floats are going to reflect that. But what's funny is. They're very frequently like children's literature Mythology or Like like historical stuff or stuff that everybody knows like almost bland in the reason that I kind of drew from the subtext of this article is. There's a finite number of floats that you can rent in New Orleans for your parade. Yeah in a lot of them. Have things like little Bo peep on right because these are rented and not a lot of them are Khokhlov typically? It's just the supercrew that has the money in the Mamiya or To to build a flow from scratch your and so the supercrew crews will have like way varying themes like a smaller crew. We'll have the theme where you know they can cobble together some flow. Some rented flow to make a cohesive theme like when he got left to close for comfort. Right Jim J. Bullock float. But you're the Zulus did the Seinfeld theme but the but I think that the floats available have to do with the theme because Interest in other are just A. There's a finite pool and there's a lot of them though. Yeah Yeah so much. So that I think sink Charles Parish or Saint Orleans parish one of the two has an ordinance that the same float can't go through the business district in more than two parades during one Mardi gras season right. So let's say you have a pre parade with little Bo peep You can't go back out as little Bo peep you cleaner. You can one more time. Oh you can only do. It can't two more so to give to the same float can't be used more than twice the central business district but there's four different parishes putting on Mardi Gras parade so technically that same flow could see a pretty decent amount so that's just in each parish just in either Orleans or Saint Charles Pears. I can't remember a little bit. Could be seeing lots of action right like eight. Eight potential unseasonably sure. Yeah all right good but I think that's pretty interesting. I really kind of reveals like how seriously they take their Mardi gras parades in New Orleans. Their local law saying how many times afloat can be used because they want to keep it fresh and interesting. That's right. Yeah so the other thing too when they're selecting these Leaders or the royalty says. Sometimes it's just random draws for the king and Queen I would think it would a lot more thought would go into it than that but I don't know maybe some of them do pick randomly. Not if it's coming from your membership and you know I think I well that makes it fair. I guess right does He. Can't jockey for position bright but You can also invite celebrities other times You actually will pay for the privilege to to be the king or the Queen or Duke or a made your in the I didn't see how much you would pay but yeah it was very very curious about that. It's pretty rich. Yeah you know sure likely pick you give someone me whereas my my dollars so the costumes and the masks are obviously a big part of this That's where a lot of money is generated custom rental and making original costumes It is tradition like we said to to leave on your mask. But they're way more flexible about it now than they used to be I think but yes but bacchus and rex I believe are are like you can lose your membership if you take your mask off during their Mardi Gras parade. They'll have you killed will right. There just ruined more than one Mardi Gras but apparently it's so Like the the the mask part of it is so Ingrained it's such an ancient part of this yet goes way back in time that it's still just totally widespread today not just among people in the pre but among people watching the parade to yes and this article says you might feel weird actually not having a mask on bright but street vendors have you covered. You can buy one from one of them. Of course you can yeah. There's plastic garbage everywhere to buy and throw right. Used to sell it didn't you? Oh I saw the glow noodles. Love those man Can We talk about moon pies? Sure sure so. This makes a Lotta sense as a throw to take the place of something that could really hurt somebody because their traditional throw in New Orleans A sweet treat us to be cracker. Jack's boxes which are very you know. It's like any tiny box if Heathrow that from ten or twelve feet away down onto someone one of those corners hitch in the face. And that's no fun now. So the tradition of throwing the Moon Pie. Which if you don't know what a Moon Pie is. You're missing out. It is a southern going to call a delicacy but that might be stretching gas station so it really isn't but they are to Graham cracker cookies. Soft ones Between with marshmallow filling in between Dipped in chocolate. It's kind of like a a portable more that's room temperature cold and soft. Yeah like it's not hard Graham right right like soft and crumbly. Yeah and they're you know I haven't had one in years and years but I'm from the south so I've had a moon pie or two in my day. You me went on this little kick a few back. Yeah where she was like. What is this and traveling? Let's there's a gas station stopping at a Moon Pie. Yeah new lasted for about a week and a half. And she's like. Oh so you got gas twice. Basically I think I mean they have other flavors now too but the chocolate is the the original right And they started in nineteen seventeen when salesman traveling salesman from Chattanooga the Chattanooga Bakery ran into is the story goes a coal miner from Kentucky. Who said you know what we could use down there in the coal mines is a portable snack the well and they came up with the Moon by. I guess in that. Coal Miner was Loretta. Lynn's father who the movie was about coal miner's daughter. Yeah sure okay. Great Movie And this became a big southern thing but it didn't become a Mardi gras thing until Mobile Alabama and they're the cracker. Jack's Crackerjack Ordinance Nineteen Seventy two. I said I think so where they said. The city actually outlawed cracker. Jack's being thrown from Mardi gras floats. Yes people getting injured by more hurt so people said well moon pies totally make sense get hit in the eye of the Moon Pie not a big deal and now if you go to Mardi Gras New Orleans. Apparently you can get moon pies thrown at you all over the place great and you don't even have to duck nope or take your shirt off. You got anything else no. I don't either happy Mardi gras everybody. Happy Hash Wednesday. I guess depending on when you hear this happy Easter okay And since I said Happy Easter of course that.

"Knocking the traditions out. Aren't we what else should we talk about? The parades. Yeah I mean. There's a lot of parades You know fifty sixty seventy eighty parades. I think this year accounted seventy nine seventy nine like that's the level of commitment. You're getting Josh. Clark is hand counting. The number parades from the free schedule The twelve days leading up to Mardi Gras those final twelve days are when now that's carnival. I know why this article is so averse to saying it is weird. They kept saying anything. But just calling it carnival. We'll know but it leads up to the day of Mardi gras right. Yeah Mardi Gras said one day of Carnival which is what is carnival. Is the twelve days leading up to Mardi gras right including Mardi Gras. That's right okay. But those are concentrated in the parishes of Orleans Jefferson Saint Bernard and saw Tammy that was pronounced probably but there are pre season. Parades like it has eked out longer and longer over. The years is the impression I get. Yeah just the same that King cakes become available January. Sixth that same day King's Day there's a couple of parades that typically A couple of praise or at least events that typically Kickoff this whole season even though carnival doesn't start until the second Friday before fat Tuesday. Just chew on it. It's all there The actual Mardi gras season kicks off January. Six that's right. Chew on that naked baby made a plastic right because we should also. We haven't said this one more thing about dates and calendars is a lot of fun Because the the lenten season can change because Easter is not on one fixed day. Yes do with the moon or like rabbit reproduction or something like that. That Mardi Gras can actually fall anywhere. Between February third and March ninth. This is a big long stretch that it could fall on right but it has to do with when Easter comes because Mardi gras forty days plus six before Easter. That's right the six days right. We should have a sideshow called calendar talking. We should be great. We just launched a spin off just like Too Close for comfort. That's right too close for comfort right. We heard back from a few people on that. So it's not a spin off of anything right now so So these crews have themes every year and they they can range sometimes. It's about a legend or a famous story. Sometimes it's a kid's story sometimes something from literature mythology Think about half of these crews have names that are Greek or Roman in origin right. Yeah well I think it's kind of a nod to the pagan roots or an also includes a gin stuff too and I saw that the whole idea of wearing masks and like masquerade balls and all that actually traces its roots back to engine Egypt. So yeah it's really interesting like this. The stuff kind of traveled from ancient Egypt to ancient Greece and in Rome and the Medieval Europe and then over to the new world. Then interesting that crazy. It's not like it's just been one unbroken chain but it's it's connected enough that the the current cruise name themselves after like a Siris or isis. Or right you know who isis the deity right? They're not down with the terrorist organization. I sel right right Th there's at least that awareness that this is rooted. This whole tradition is rooted in in in in history that far back. That's really cool. It's cool you know and all brought to you by Bud. Light and your boobs Should we take a break? Sure all right. Let's take a break and we'll talk a little bit more about superfoods right after this.

"Like we said though the Real Mardi gras celebration started in earnest in Mobile Alabama. Right yes so. He named the thing. I don't know if he actually celebrated Mardi Gras but he named that little area. He named that area Ponto Mardi Gras but the so that was sixteen. Ninety nine apparently four years later Immobile before it was even a town. They celebrated their first like Mardi Gras party. Or whatever or something like that. The fort and the New Orleans was Inc founded in seventeen eighteen and they started having Mardi gras parties like shortly after that so resolved very close to the beginning of the eighteenth century everybody started having Mardi Gras and it was like directly from the French influence in the area. And if you look into the early eighteen. Hundreds like the eighteen twenties and into the eighteen thirties. This is when you start seeing a little bit more of what we're talking about as far as Carriages that are decorated People parading in masks walking on foot. Yeah well at this point or encourages. It was largely spontaneous though Church there. Just be people partying on the street wearing mass. Yeah let's talk that way. Yeah they did and then other people will walk that way too and all of a sudden you had A. That's right but the thing is these this revelry on the streets because everybody was indulging in the pointless like jolt but really really overindulge. This wasn't just your average like village party the centre everybody was getting trashed even back. Then and so people were getting in fights and people were copson horses kicking people right off of their feet. All sorts of crazy stuff was happening. It was cops New Orleans And so the the city the city leaders were like. We're not going to do this anymore. This is out of hand and an eighteen fifty seven. I believe a group of Actually from what? I saw transplants for Mobile. Who were members of a group called the Cow Bellion Durant in society. More cowbell sure they They said hey how about. This will actually organize a legit parade in. It'll be much more orderly. There won't be this chaos and they formed the mystic crew of Thomas or Komo yes so. There's a lot of cases in place of Sees Mystic K. But it doesn't look scary like we talked about right. Oh does it to you well not mystic crew but it depends on what follows mystic. 'cause it could look creepy to me okay. but crew is spelled with a k. r. e. w. e. and we should go ahead and talk a little bit about what a crew is. Yeah it's It's a group of people who get together and Technically they are like legit nonprofits and as they get larger at least via the charity organizations. They're supposed to be. Yeah and they are sort of the group of people who would get together and say this is our gang and we're going to Gang in a good way and we're GONNA make afloat and do this theme this year and then all get together and get super drunk. Probably not even I bet you there's a a non drinking crew like one gotta be there has to be at least at grew right but they They they they were anonymous originally like they were yesterday groups that were like out and proud in public but like they wore masks like their identity. Really was anonymously. You were an anonymous member of this group. Try and and Over time now people like the anonymity is not quite as important and it is to some though I think I think sometimes they take it serious new still. Yeah I mean not in like I don't know maybe you can't get kicked out it. Might it might be more of a light hearted thing but I think generally they try and still respect the the masks on approach sure. Okay all right but I mean like if you told somebody like I'm a member of the Crew of wrecks or something like that kick you out taking your mask off during the parade specifically think so. Yeah so we'll hear about it. We got that wrong. We definitely they grew from these little tiny societies into very large groups Well funded almost across the board. Yeah because they're supported by do's and they put on parades and balls masquerade balls on the night of Mardi Gras and Some of them are just really enormous. Have like big name. Celebrities like huge bands that play and yeah nominate a person to be like the leader. The King or Queen. Yeah each year. Yeah like you could. They could say Josh Clark. We want you to come down. They could and be the king of our crew this year. Right and that's how it started back in eighteen fifty seven I think is eighteen. Seventy two that. The first King of a crew is nominated right but eighteen. Fifty seven was when the mystic crew of Komo's Had what's now looked at the first As the first kind of modern Mardi Gras parade and Aside from a few years where like world wars interrupted things. They've been doing this every year since then. Yeah there's another so eighteen. Fifty seven was a big year. Eighteen seventy two. That I mentioned was another big year because that year the The traditional Mardi gras colors were added. I believe by the crew of wrecks. And there's a lot of A lot of misunderstanding supposedly so that year the crew rex named as their king or the the leader. I can't remember which one he was. The Russian Grand Duke Alexi who was from the House of Romanoff and they said well these colors came from the house of Romanov the gold the green and the purple that we also see it with with Mardi Gras. This is absolutely not true. The House of Romanov has like red yellow and blue. I believe or their colors. But that's just the legend that came about but some other stuff that year like the idea of electing a king through your Mardi Gras parade Throwing beads for the first time happen that year. Yeah the song the yeah the song what. What is it if I ever cease to You've never heard it actually so you I bet you if we played it you might recognize it. So the colors though purple stands for Justice Green for faith and gold for power supposedly. I'll just made up out of whole cloth here and the idea with the beads was supposedly originally that you would toss these two people. He thought exemplified these traits. I'm not sure how accurate that is. Either Now it is. Of course morphed into another tradition which. I don't even know if that's still going on why. Hey Mr throw me something. Throw me something Mister Mister. Throw some combination of those words. I'll show you something and you throw me something. Oh that's different so I think it went from. You look like you're involved in justice. Here's some beads to there's this traditional call. I think Mr Throw me something. Okay and then. I think it morphed into the boobs thing that you just did that literally quieter. But I don't even know you know with all the advancements we've made in the past few years if people are doing that anymore. I would like to know about that because I'm not going to go down to Mardi Gras. How come to New Orleans jazz fest? Not Mardi Gras. Yeah and I'll have a blast. Sure but I'm not going to go to this things when we were there last October. Think so yeah and there's candy in the streets in I'm like there's no way this is leftover for Mardi gras parades all the that. I was wondering yes. Do they. Just do it. All the time I mean every time I've been there have been parties. Parades just just seems like one of those towns where they're always getting down right throwing candy Should we well? I guess we should say quickly if you're before we break if you'RE GONNA go. We're not discouraging ago right But planet advance.

Oh Yeah it's so personal to so many people are sure and we're GONNA mess up so much they're going to be like you didn't mention my crew right Yeah I I've been in New Orleans twice for the shows that we've done their Mardi Gras. Read a bunch about it so now I understand New Orleans Mardi gras better than ever but I also learned. That's one of those things where it's kind of like like researching humor where you can understand the mechanism behind humor and you can explain humor. But it doesn't quite yet Hampshire fully. That's what we're going to do here you to this one will stink right now. It won't it'll be fine. I've never been to Mardi gras either.

Yeah Dude Anyway Doug Also let's get it started Charles. Yes Mardi Gras Aka and is it pronounced carnival or does it have to have an e. on the end. I think it's carnival all and I think it's carnival because actually comes from the Latin words. Karna Carney volley which means farewell to the flesh sheet volleyball. That's that's better interpretation is wrong but I like his farewell to flesh out. It means yes not to be confused with candyman to farewell to the flesh. It just means farewell to the flesh Carnival and Mardi gras began in January. And like we said today's fat Tuesday so everything has been going on in New Orleans and other places but we're talking about the New Orleans Mardi gras right not Mobile Alabama. I'm sorry I know that you are the Oggi's but apparently right yeah. They was going to say that they had the first one by a mile. From from this I think fifteen years before New Orleans is even founded. Yeah and our very own I mean there are various neighborhoods around the world that do stuff like this Kirkwood in Atlanta for some reason has a little New Orleans thing and every year they do a little Mardi gras parade in paint the signs purple and gold and green. And don't know why maybe there's just some people from New Orleans Shoda that'd be my guess. Yeah that that happened post Katrina. We got a lot of people that moved here. But yeah there was a yeah. That's right. I wonder if that does have to do with that. And maybe it does. It does seem like the of Mardi Gras and the Different influences for Mardi gras kind of have converged in New Orleans. It's like yes. Give us. This will take this tradition. Yes give us that right now. Everybody thinks when you think Mardi gras you think New Orleans but one thing that I don't think this article Really pointed out very well is Mardi Gras is a day. That's one part of Carnival Volley yet. It's the culmination of a couple of weeks of partying and parading and masquerade bowling. Yes and well. We'll just see a lot of fun stuff right. But it's still like to Rio for carnival right to the exact same festival celebrated differently in Brazil but the same thing. They're celebrating the same thing as they're celebrating through the Mardi gras season in New Orleans. That's right or in Kirkwood. I Bet Brazil would be pretty fun. I can't imagine with all the all those ugly men and women that live there dressed in drab like baggy clothing man. This is my favorite part of the world. Cup Is To seeing people in the crowd from Brazil all the models. The average person is a supermodel. So it says on the tourist. That's right Fat Tuesday of course is the day before Wednesday which is tomorrow and the beginning of lent I grew up Baptist as everyone knows and so I'd never had never got the charcoal on your forehead. Now and in fact in the in the south in the seventies and eighties. There were so few Catholics at big stones at you. Have the chart goes well. I didn't even know what it was really. I mean I was. I think I remember being in college and being like you got something on your head. I don't remember what the ashes for. I'm sure a one point. Three Billion Catholics will right in to tell us. But it's it's the start of lent like you said which is a period of fasting before Easter. Right very it's a very holy period for the Roman Catholic Church. Yeah and I think the original idea was For the partying is. Hey let's let's indulge before we have to not indulge right so unlike foods and stuff. I don't think it was like. Let's all get super hammered. Well I don't know I don't know maybe so Prior to that even has roots and paganism even before the Roman Catholic every holiday we celebrate is based on paganism and then synchronized by the Roman Catholic Church. That's right but The Pagan roots of it were more pragmatic or practical. Where you had stuff that was like the last of the harvest From the summer before the fall before and it was starting to get kind of certain to turn and spoil and you needed to eat it Before that time so it was this period of like using up everything in the house. Turn Bad. Eat. All these and like you would do. That was called crop booth. I believe or booth Gras Gras booth. Which means fat fat cower fat fat beef okay and it was It was that like the right that the the beef had been fat in just to perfection. And they weren't going to get any fatter and they wouldn't even make it any any further and you just slaughter me need them or you just eat all this stuff in your house. Maybe it wouldn't make any further like the cows about today. I kinda fat style. Let's eat it So they think are they. There's evidence at least there was Mardi gras celebrating. Going on maybe is early. Eighteenth Century. Definitely from what I saw there was a French explorer named Pierre. Lemoyne Sierra de Belleville. I think you you really got it. Yeah especially if you crunch it together and speed it up. I can't do you really nailed it. And he was exploring around and camping out about fifty miles south of what is now New Orleans. And he's like hey. I know that they're celebrating France right now so I am going to Chris in the site point do Mardi Gras And.

"Celebrate their version of mardi gras holiday with each and cultural roots. I'm Jim Michener, and this is of the planet berry as a professor of French and folklore at the university of Louisiana says there are a number of reasons why mardi gras cruise at this time of year. It is a holiday that's part of the Catholic church calendar. It occurs. The bay right before Ash Wednesday, which is the beginning of a forty day period of fasting call which takes us to Easter. But there were older practices that even preceded Christianity in Europe that were already very similar to what we now see happening in the morning.
