Just the name Mardi Gras conjures up images of drunken, bead-wearing revelers dancing through the streets of New Orleans. But how, and when, did this huge mid-winter party get started? Here's a look at the history of Mardi Gras throughout the ages and across the nations.

So this is where the last year
of the Mayan calendar begins—
5,000 birds falling on Beebe,

ending with that blade
of rusted teeth to chew
through the last of what's left
