The high octane holiday of Mardi Gras is known for its perplexing partying laced with rampant revelry deeply infused with drunkenness and lascivious behavior. Certainly, the hallowed Saint Nicholas and the blessed inhabitants of North Pole City don’t partake of that particular slant on what is supposed to be a holy holiday. Well, perhaps the Winter God Jack Frost and his lively troop of Nymphs and Fairies. They mysteriously leave the North Pole during the festivities of Carnival. It’s likely they frequent the celebrations in New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro.🤗
The Warping Of Shrove Tuesday Into Mardi Gras
Santa Claus and his family observe the season of Shrovetide, rather than Carnival. These are a series of Pre-Lent holidays commencing with Epiphany or the Three Wise Men Magi proclaiming Jesus Christ was the Son of the Omniverse God. Mardi Gras itself was originally known as Shrove Tuesday which is a final day of indulgence before the fasting of Lent. This time of repentance for sins and self-control over one’s own animal urges begins on Ash Wednesday after Mardi Gras. It then extends until Easter Sunday several weeks later. The Mardi Gras practice of simply indulging in rich luxurious foods blew forth into prolific partying about false idols amid a carnal atmosphere of moral ambiguity drowned in liquor and other mind-altering substances.😱
Mardi Gras At North Pole City
So on Mardi Gras Santa and the good folks at North Pole City eat three times more than they usually do. And that’s saying a lot! Most of the meals take place in the great North Pole City Banquet Hall. Naturally, there’s the traditional pancake breakfast that gives Mardi Gras the nickname Pancake Day in some parts of the world. Throughout the day there is a non-stop production of every meal, dessert, and non-alcoholic beverage imaginable! Even the Peppermint Ice Cream Bandit Elf Gerbert is allowed to eat as much of his pink minty creamy goodness as he pleases! As evening approaches there’s a parade and fireworks show. Candy and holy rosary beads blessed by Saint Nicholas are thrown to the crowds that include supernatural visitors from around the world. Often those looking for a family-friendly celebration steeped in a magical atmosphere.🥞🍔🍕🌮🍨🍦🍰🌭
Santa Claus Attempts To Neutralize The Dark Leader Of Mardi Gras
Santa Claus has become increasingly concerned with a Super Villain called The Mardi Gras Joker. A jester looking Voodoo Master who operates out of New Orleans who has officially taken over the holiday of Mardi Gras. He continues to stoke the dark flames of damnation that have dominated the holidays Spirit in recent decades. His goal is to bring about a global chaotic Party Apocalypse that would be a nightmare like The Purge films! 24-7 non-stop madness devoid of any morality! Santa sent two of his best Elf Agents down to New Orleans on Mardi Gras to look into this nefarious denizen of darkness. The Elves reported back to Santa they had the target in sight and were ready to capture him.🃏
The Humane Imprisonment Of The Joker
The intent was to turn the Mardi Gras Joker over to us here at Mystic Investigations who would, in turn, transport him to the great Sorcerer of the light known as Ian McTavish. He runs a world-renowned magic school out of Scotland. He also has a paranormal prison to contain threats the mainstream governments couldn’t handle. So the Elves stealthily made their way into his lair within the sewers of Orleans. They easily evaded his minions and found the filthy fiend asleep in a chamber built off the sewer system.🤡
Two Elves Are Stronger Than A Voodoo Master!
The Voodoo Master was surrounded by all manner of protective charms but the Elves de-enchanted them and quickly pulled him out of bed. They whipped holy handcuffs on him at super speed as he woke up angrily screaming! Luckily the concrete walls of his chamber were sound proof so his minions couldn’t hear him. He looked up to see the two Elves and said, “Who in the hell are you? Do you have any idea who you’re dealing with? You little shrimps are already dead!” He tried to recite some voodoo curses on them but the sinister spells wouldn’t stick to their holy auras swimming in the Spirit Of Christmas and the blessing of the living Saint Nicholas. He was speechless as his powers seemed useless against these little guys. He asked again who they were and they said in unison, “We’re Santa Claus’s Elves! Merry Mardi Gras Mr. Joker!” He started laughing insanely while muttering, “There’s no such thing as Santa! You guys are nuts!”🎅
The Heaven Ordered Release Of The Mardi Gras Joker!
The strong Elves were about to haul the criminal mastermind away when a call came in from Santa Claus. Santa said, “Mission Abort!” The Elves were in total disbelief and asked Santa to repeat himself. He confirmed the cancellation of the objective and they reluctantly returned to the North Pole. They left the Joker handcuffed in the dimly lit chamber until his minions found him hours later. It turns out Santa was contacted by the Archangels of Heaven who ordered him to stand down and not interfere with the destiny of these particular events. It seems the Mardi Gras Joker’s alarming activities are integral in the same way the Devil is in the master plan leading up to the final battles of Armageddon! It is not for Santa to question the wisdom of the Heavenly Host and the Holy Lord. That being said Santa is allowed to do something if he happens upon forces of darkness like the Joker by accident. This would indicate it is fate and he would have the green light to act. Such is the case when the Anti-Claus repeatedly attempts to cause Christmas havoc and is thwarted by Father Christmas.😇
The Finale Of Mardi Gras
Despite coming so close to saving the world from the Joker, Santa enjoyed the final fantastical dinner of Mardi Gras just before Midnight. On Ash Wednesday he began his fasting that will last until Easter Sunday and the enchanted arrival of The Easter Bunny. Of course realistically as a Demi-Angel he can get by without eating for long periods of time. However, it’s the thought that counts. Still, he loves food just as much as the Elves do. The Elves will eat somewhat less than usual but they get a free pass on the fasting as they have extremely fast metabolisms and use up a lot of energy. They need to eat sweets all the time! Merry Mardi Gras To All And To All A Responsible Night Of Moderate Partying!🎉
