Another holiday sold to the general population as an excuse to get drunk and buy stuff.

For most, it's linked to the liturgical calendar.

randomly greeting folks with "It's MARDI GRAS!!" or similar?

I remember being in Trader Joe's last year and somebody just randomly greeted me with that shit...I was like " .......... "
I was just trying to stock up on dry goods at 9am ....

Hell I made some catfish, gumbo, and hush puppies the other day for Mardi Gras.
Have you never experienced one? Great food, lots of booze, and all around good time

Mardi Gras back in the day was a blast! Definitely a world-wide event for people who celebrate carnival and the like.

Overall, I've attended two Nawlins Mardi Gras and they were unbelievably fun. I feel for New Orleans because those events kept artists, musicians, cooks, restaurants, hotels and all kinds of creators afloat for the whole year.
