Myli Learns About New Orleans Mardi Gras Parades
By Joyce Furstenau
1 Myli woke up early once again on Tuesday morning. "Is it Mardi Gras today? Can I put my costume on?" she asked her mother, Linda.
2 Everyone got up early in New Orleans to go to the Mardi Gras parade. Uncle Dean and Aunt Sue were already waiting for them on Canal Street. They got up very early to make sure ladders and chairs were set up for family and friends.
3 "Yes, dear, today is Tuesday. Mardi Gras is always on a Tuesday, and, yes, you may get your princess costume on. Please brush your teeth before you get dressed," said her mother.
4 Myli brushed her teeth. Linda combed Myli's hair. She twisted her long, auburn tresses into French braids. Myli looked very regal in her princess costume.
5 "How did the New Orleans Mardi Gras parade get started?" asked Myli, admiring her hairdo in the mirror.
