That's right!! Today is 12th Night, King's Day, Epiphany...the official end of the Christmas Season and the beginning of Carnival.
You know what that means, don't ya? Just 6 days into 2011 and it's already time to forget about those New Year's Resolutions to lose those last few baby pounds (so what if the baby is in college....and don't feel bad...see my earlier post about Pajama Jeans...those'll work for ya) and start eating King Cakes. It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it, might as well be us.
And here's the kicker. Mardi Gras is late this year....March 8th, so pace yourselves. That's a whole lotta king cake time.
