Mardi Gras may be our favorite time of year, but that's just part of the story. There's a reason to celebrate in every season, and we've got what you need to do it in style. Falling usually sometime during Mardi Gras season, but sometimes a little after it's over, Valentine's day is our first opportunity to celebrate with colors other than purple, green, and gold. Everything is pink and red, and there is no shortage of creative ways to decorate and accessorize, or surprise your sweetheart with a gift. Of course, following Valentine's Day, put away the pink and red and get out the green: It's time for St. Patrick's Day! Green beer is not enough. A hat and some beads are absolute necessities. Cinco de Mayo may be Mexico's holiday, but that doesn't stop people all over from celebrating. Which leads to Memorial Day and Fourth of July. These are all patriotic holidays that should be observed with more than just fireworks and food. With summer winding down, it's time to start thinking about Halloween, and getting your costumes and decorations ready. Since it's followed so closely by Thanksgiving and Christmas, it's always a good idea to get as much as you can taken care of ahead of time, so you'll have time to enjoy the holidays. And behind the scenes, while all this is going on all year round, we're in the process of getting ready for the next Mardi Gras, so we can start the whole thing all over again.
